There should be a break here.
After the probing other stuff happens that leads to the traceback.

Traceback (innermost last):

Did you force text mode?
Did X come up?
There should be an error message if X won't start.

Here you trying a text install. text.py it the text frontend to the installer.
and call the ButtonChoiceWindow method.
Which should draw an window with 2 buttons (OK and Cancel)
ButtonChoiceWindow is called with (screen, title,text,buttons=[...])


 File "usr/lib/python1.5/site-packages/snack.py", line 547, in
ButtonChoiceWindow

in ButtonChoiceMethod, some defaults are used
width=40, x=None, y=None, help=None

t = TextboxReflowed(width, text, maxHeight = screen.height - 12)
AttributeError: 'None' object has no attribute 'height'


screen is not correctly set before this call(findIsoImages() calls messageWindow() ) so screen.height is not valid.
it scans the the directory you gave looking for ISO images.
When it finds one, it mounts it and looks for the .disk<num>-<arch> file
to figure out which disk it is, then it tests the size of the image.
The call to messageWindow() is because the ISO inage is not a multiple of of 2048 bytes.


What the size of the disk images?
The messageWindow() call should not normaly be called.
