unhandled exception has occurred

I got this message during the last few mins of FC3-DVD installation despite the fact that I have tried to install it so many times. It's just the same message. I intend to dual boot with Windows XP and I also put /boot in first 100MB (before Windows partition) of 1st physical drive

unhandled exception has occurred.....

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/src/build/475969-i386/install//usr/lib/anaconda/", line 1074, in handleRenderCallback
File "/usr/src/build/475969-i386/install//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/", line 242, in renderCallback

     stdout = devnull)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/", line 53, in execWithRedirect
     raise RuntimeError, command + " can not be run"
RuntimeError: /usr/sbin/kudzu can not be run
I am advised to report the bug but feel reluctant to do so. That's why I want to ask if anyone has encountered this problem before and how to fix this?

My hardware is considered "old" but with 1G RAM and ATI raedon 9800 128M AGP4X video card.

It *may* be an error with the disc, so it's worth physically checking for scratches etc., then running the Media Check function. If you haven't done so, then it's always worth running the md5sum utility to check that your original ISO is good. FWIW, the next version is scheduled for release on 6th June, so if you are thinking of re-downloading you may want to wait a couple of days.

Provided that your hardware meets the minimum requirements for running Fedora then you can file a bug. Duplicate bugs are normal and expected.
