install exits abnormally when upgrading FC3 to FC4.

hi. im trying to upgrade FC3 to FC4. I did the media check on the disk and they passed. I get to the stage where it says "Preparing Install" and then i get an error message that the install exited abnormally. Then it sends all the termination/kill signals, disables the swap, umounts the filesystems then tells me it is safe to reboot my system. I don't even know what to google for because it doesn't even give me an error number to go on. Has anyone had this issue and solved it? thanks for any replies in advance.
