I found this, on several machines,
both when installing from CDs and from the hard disk.
In my view, there is a fault in anaconda.
(Both download and CDs passed all tests.)

My solution was to install a minimal set of packages
(this is a choice if you opt for a "Custom" installation)
and then run "yum groupinstall ..." for the various package lists
(as given by "yum grouplist").
