Yes, there are several error messages when anaconda fails before it says 
the system can be restarted.
I will try the acpi suggestion and if that fails I will take down the 
anaconda lines from both fails and submit them for review.
On a Core 2 Quad HP server I had to provide many kernel parameters to 
get CentOS 5.2 to install but RHEL 5.3 went up without a hitch.
Hopefully CentOS 5.3 once released is close enough to RHEL 5.3 with the 
CentOS changes that it will work on newer equipment better also.
I plan to use it as a teaching and production OS at my jobs.
