I had a lot of trouble with the installer as well, on several
different machines. Your best bet is just to mount the CD and "rpm
-Uvh --force --nodeps *.rpm". That's how I ended up doing it.

If you changed the file /etc/redhat-release, which contains the
startup greeting on the shell login, that may be the cause of your
trouble -- that's how the installer seems to identify what system
you're running. I noticed that the machines where I had edited that
file had trouble with the installer (though one computer, an iMac DV,
that had an "original" file didn't work either -- there seems to be
more than one problem).
