100% repeatable on the 3 attempts on the lower-mem machine. On the same machin

The package  selinux-policy-targeted 3.3.1 103.fc9 -- I am running a
couple of additional installs to gather more information.

Well, the behaviour is really weird. Perhaps there is no OOM killer in
place during an anaconda install? If there was, it'd expect the rpm
process or anaconda to be shot down -- but the machine is halting
instead, it literally switches off.

Whatever is bootstrapping anaconda (init script in the initrd?) should
be able to at least see the odd exit status and echo a "something went
wrong" msg...? Maybe that's the problem?
