Description of problem:
Description of problem: When creating LVM on RAID partitions the
anaconda-ks.cfg is invalid.  In particular, the "raid pv.20 --fstype
physical volume (LVM) --level=RAID1 raid.17 raid.18" line that was
created should have had the fstype quoted since it contains embedded

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do an install of el4 with lvm on raid.
2. reinstall using the partition information from anaconda-ks.cfg
3. Install fails with "Tried to use an undefined partition in RAID specification"

Actual Results:  Backtrace occurred.

Expected Results:  Normal install

Additional info:

The following line was generated by anaconda:
raid pv.26 --fstype physical volume (LVM) --level=RAID1 raid.24 raid.25

The above is the problem. Removing the --fstype part fixes the problem.
I suppose putting quotes around "physical volume (LVM)" would also fix it but I have not tested this.

This is the same bug as 119243 which was supposed to be fixed in el3-u3.
