Never heard of that error, Redhat has nothing on its site about that particular error that I found. My only suggestion at this point is to try a text install if your doing a graphical install. Also, what type of install are you trying? A custom, desktop, server?

AAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEE!!

Did you really mean to type "SCREAMS", or are you asking about the "FATAL ERROR: NO SCREENS FOUND" message that can accompany a failed X configuration? The point at which you say the error occurs is about where the install would try to detect and configure your video card and monitor, so I'd suspect that's really what you're seeing.

so what happens if you do a text based install, and if that doesn't work, maybe a custom install instead of the workstation?

that occured to me too, but he typed "screams" in the thread title and in the post itself.

besides... it's so much more interesting that way
