yes :) I have tested with the anaconda from centos (maybe I miss a 
shared library ?) but the problem is exactly the same ...
Strange .... the Graphical install don't want to work.

I think the problem is not anaconda after all ... maybe  the fact to 
compile for i686 some packages  make the install process
don't work correctly?

I will try to recompile some rpms like util-linux for i386, not for i686 :-/

Thanks for your help :)
