Description of problem:
The creation of a boot disk during installation fails. I get an error message
indicating that the disk is probably broken (which it is definitely not, cause I
tested al least 3 different disks). I've attached a screenshot with the german
error message from anaconda. As the creation of the boot disk takes much longer
than on any other earlier Red Hat release I suspect that the disk is simply
full. Creating the boot disk using mkbootdisk on the freshly installed system
works without any problem.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to create a boot disk at install time
