Did you use bittorrent? If so, you may have gotten the wrong disk 1 2 
and 3. If you can, mount the cd1 and look in the rpms directory and 
check the dates on the rpms. If they are back in January, you have the 
wrong CD1-3. Redownload the first three cds.
Another clue that you have the wrong cd1 is that there is a warning that 
this is a test release near the beginning of the install.
