Nightly build 20100124 Anaconda crashes

I don't know if this is of any interest.
I downloaded for the first time a nightly build of Rawhide -
desktop-i386-20100124.18 and put it on a USB stick.
I wanted to install it on a unit but Anaconda keeps crashing all the
It gets to the stage where I should pick my storage setup (easy or
fancy). Regardless of choice, I am taken to a crash screen.
The unit is a normal SATA-laptop with no fancy Intel chipset.

The crash-log from Anaconda is attached.

It seems that Gnome has some issues mounting devices. Mounting them
manually from the terminal works fine however.
So probably it should be possible to install the nightly build if I knew
what and how to mount :)

hälsningar / regards
