Mysql won't install (crashes) on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 Beta 1 (Taroon)

P: n/a
When installing the rpms (or the tar file) onto Red Hat Enteprise
Linux AS Beta 1 (Taroon), we get the follwing error:

Installing all prepared tables
/usr/bin/mysql_install_db: line 1: 7690 Segmentation fault
/usr/sbin/mysqld --bootstrap --skip-grant-tables --basedir=/
--datadir=/var/lib/mysql --skip-innodb --skip-bdb
Installation of grant tables failed

The log file simply shows a start and a stop of the server.

How to repeat:
1) Load RH AS Beta 1:
