I am having the same problem.  I believe the problem is with the
hardware probe.  If I install with linux noprobe, I get past the place
where the install stops.  Unfortunately this does me no good as I am not
familiar with the steps necessary to ensure FC4 sees all the appropriate
hardware.  My motherboard is the MSI RS480M2-IL with a SATA drive.

As with Pete's post, all help is greatly appreciated.
