Your original message was complaining about Anaconda development, and
strongly implied that the problem was with Anaconda not working on all-SCSI
systems. To use your analogy, it's like you come into the mechanic and say:
"My car keeps driving into telephone poles! Driving never seems to work with
these VWs. I don't think their engines are designed very well."

Since your system is actually *crashing* (did you say exactly where? it
wasn't clear), I don't think that's it after all.
