Redhat 7.1 Install, Anaconda Error?


I'm Currently having trouble installing Redhat 7.1. I'm booting from CD, not giving any special options (Like 'expert' or 'lowres')at the first screen and before the install gets anywhere it crashes out with the following error:

Running anaconda - please wait...
Traceback (innermost last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 38, in ?
import isys
ImportError: No module named isys
install exited abnormally
sending termination signals...done
blah, blah, blah.....

I've tried having a look on the redhat site and i don't know if im looking in the wrong place but there doesn't seem to be anything useful.

Any Ideas?

You could try to do the install in text mode?
