FC2 AMD_64 install fails



Hi List

I seached the list and it seems I am the only person in the whole wide
world with an install failure on FC2 for AMD64??? ( or maybe I searched
like my but anyway...)

I proceed to do a "everything" install and have FC2 do a auto partition
on a 120GB SATA disk. All's well at this point, then it formats
partition and copies the install image to disk and then it prepares the
rpm transaction and then , woops, does a post install configuration
without copying anything and gives me a message like follows:

An unhandled exception has occured .....

Traceback
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 1048, in handleRenderCallback
self.currentWindow.renderCallback()
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line 242, in renderCallback
self.initf.icw.nextClicked()
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/gui.py", line 763, in nextClicked
self.dispatch.gotoNext()
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 169, in gotoNext
self.moveStep()
bla bla bla
(I have to type this by hand since folks thinks other folks still use
floppy drives...)

Anyway, I thought it had something to do with my graphics card, so I
tried a text only install, same thing, different errors...

Anyone have any idea what could be wrong?

PS all CD media MD5SUMS check out OK

PPS system = AMD 64 3200, 1GB DDR400 RAM, 120GB SATA DISK NVIDIA FX-5700
256MB

PPPS how difficult would it be to have the option to write to CD during
install, ie, write a boot CD at least?

PPPPS thanks for the help and hard work on FC!!
