There are at least two problems, first a mount/unmount problem in Red
Hat's logic, second an extra comma on line 1508 line of todo.py.  The
real trigger seems to be when you run out of disk space after packaage
selection and have to back up.  Go to the following URL, then to the
query page, and query for the "Red Hat Linux", "6.1", "installer"
package, and you should find several (178) bugzilla items possibly
related to your problem.  Including "python" in the description field
as a criteria will narrow the list some (31 items).  ;-)

Bottom line the new Anaconda installer is NEW, and like too mch new
software hasn't had enough of the wrinkles shaken out.  The switch to
gnorpm in RH 6.0 was just as bad, the app was several steps back from
glint which it replaced, the version with 6.1 is miles better but I
still know at least 3 ways to crash it.  Over all Red Hat tends to
push stuff out the door a little early for my taste.
