After rebooting many times and trying different things, I was able to get a 
bit more information. I was able to get the Anaconda error message by *not* 
using text mode. X starts up but then kicks back into text mode when this 
error pops up.

Some of the lines are not quite complete as I had to copy them by hand.

Traceback (most recent call last)
   File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 900, in ?
   File /usr/bin/anaconda/iutil.py", line 264, ...
   File "/usr/bin/anaconda/isys.py", line 422 ...
System Error: (2, 'No such file or directory')

Does this provide any help?
