Re: [Fedora] Crash during partition section of install

Funny, I encountered this same exact error earlier today when I tried to install FC4 on a 40GB IDE drive. On all partitions that I created. Because I was in a hurry, I just shut the thing off. I figured I did something odd at the beginning so I'll try it again tomorrow. However, seeing that I'm not the only one with this problem makes me wonder if there isn't something else at work here. I'm interested to see what others have come up with...
