new info

i have swapped my cd rom drive, keyboard, monitor, mouse and hard drive and it still gives me the same message as above.
plus when i start the installation in the linux text mode it goes through everything then right after it formats my harddrive it gives me this some sort of error to report to bugzilla. and that is not helping me any.
this is the error

--------------------start of message---------------------------------
traceback (most recent last call):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 1120, in ?, dipatch, configFileData)

File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch/py", line 236, in moveStep

------------------end of message---------------------------------

I am having this exact same problem. I have seen some news groups point to making SRPMS that can fix this, but it seems that you need to do this after installation when you have a working Linux system. I can install in text mode, but when it boots up it goes to initialize everything in graphical mode and then freezes. I would like to run the entire install in graphical mode - did you come up with any way to do that?
