Do you get any more verbose log information is you use the -debug option in the runInstaller to indicate why the "AttachHome" is failing?

I've got an odd situation in a RAC install where a node is getting skipped but I'm not getting any direct details of it happening and why.  Here's the setup:

4 nodes
Installing CRS
EMC disks,asmlib
RHEL 4.6 I run through the CRS installation and get all the way to running $CRS_HOME/ on each of the 4 nodes.  No errors, no issues at this point.  3 of the nodes this works fine.  The 4th doesn't have ANYTHING under $CRS_HOME.

    * permissions are the same on all $CRS_HOME directories
    * I've run various cluvfy commands and they all come back without errors
    * checking /...oraInventory/logs installation log for that server I only find one message about a problem and then it stops: INFO: 'AttachHome' failed.  This is the same message I see both on the node I installed from and on the node that's not getting any code copied over.

Any clues what to check for finding the problem?  I'm at a loss.
