this is the error message i get:

Traceback (...):
   File "/usr/bin/anaconda/", line 284, in ?
     from installclass import DefaultInstall
   File "/usr/bin/anaconda/installclass.py", line 27, in ?
     from constants import BETANAG
ImportError: cannot import name BETANAG

It seems to be a bug in Redhat and it only happens with our two 
computers that are the same model. The Install CD boots on other 
machines in Anaconda without problems.

I decided to wait for the Redhat 9, which is announced for next monday 
and see if this will install.
