Disconnected the 40Gb Seagate Barracuda drive of the three being used and the
install completed sucessfully.

Root cause of the fault was the system being unable to repartition the HDD. Am
investigating the cause of the system not being able to partition the HDD.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2005-05-09 15:44:33 UTC
This should be fixed for FC4.
