Red face Unable to install fedora 8 or 7 on hp dc5700 desktop

I am unable to install fedora on hp dc 5700 machine. It is giving some exception error. The error message is as follows.

Exception Occurred
An unhandled exception had occurred. This is most likely a bug.
Please copy the fill text of this exception or dave the crash dump
to a floppy then file a detailed bug report against anaconda at

Traceback(most recent call last)

Some times it hangs after selecting custom layout for partotioning or some times it stucks after created the custom partitions......
