Description manishr 2005-11-10 03:03:00 UTC
Description of problem:
On first trying to install FC4 the anaconda crashed, prompting a bug report file
to be saved to floppy  and a message stating that this may be a bug - This

default partitions option then it did and promptly crashed.

After re-booting, the installation went smoothly.
