Description of problem:
Well, I cannot proceed any further in the installation process because of an IO 
Error...  How to reproduce it?  Well, I simply install as a dual boot system 
(the first OS installed was Windows 2000) and after setting up the accounts, I 
get that IO Error...  I have attached the dump it has saved on a floppy disk...

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Windows 2000
2.Start up Linux's install
3.Install as a workstation
4.Install as a dual boot system
5.Proceed until the Account creation screen
6.Create one account and click 'next'

Actual Results:  Got an IO Error which made the Installation failed.

Expected Results:  It should have showed me the next screen of the installation 

Additional info:

Here's the error I saw inside the popup...
