Description of problem:
I have an installation of Fedora Core 4 on a Xeon system with dual SATA drives. The machine was installed 
in FC2 with RAID-1 partitions for /boot, /, /var. /home and swap. When I attempted to upgrade this
machine to FC4 today, the md root partition was found for upgrading and all the partitions were mounted 
by anaconda (according to df in a virtual terminal). However the /boot partition is not found for upgrading 
by anaconda in the Upgrade Boot partition section. Is this a known bug in anaconda? How am I supposed 
to upgrade such a system since the only options I am given is to skip upgrading the boot partition or to 
create a new boot partition (the upgrade the boot partition option is dimmed).

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC2 with raid-1 partitions for /, /home, /boot, /var and swap.
2. Attempt to upgrade install FC4 on this machine.

Actual Results:  The Upgrade the Boot Loader step could not find a boot partition to upgrade despite the md for the /boot 
partition having been mounted by anaconda in the previous step.

Expected Results:  The /boot partition should have been found for upgrading by anaconda despite it being on a RAID-1
