rpmdb fatal error during FC6 install

I'm installing FC6 on 12 pc, in 7 of them (p3 with 128Mb ram), during the installation (text mode) i get this error:

rpmdb: ... fatal region error detected ..

I get this error during the installation of the packages, when i'm using the first cd.
The output of this error fills the page and the installation stop.

Searching on google i can see some of this error but only using yum AFTER the installation.

After this error if i use CTRL-F1 and do chroot /mnt/sysimage, rpm -qa i get the error about the corruption of the rpm database, but obviuosly is too late to rebuild it.

What can i do?
It's a know issue of the FC6 installation?

Now i've found a topic similary to this, it could be a memory issue, but 128Mb in the manual is said to be ok, how can i solve it?

Just a guess as you are at the minimum hardware specs.
If you have an on-board graphics card that is using system memory, then you have even less memory available.
And you may want to have a look at the amount of hard disk space you have for each install ?
Try selecting the bare minimum of packages to be included in the installation and see if that helps.

If it does not then you may want to have a look at another Distro which does not have the same requirements.
You can have a look here : http://distrowatch.com/
