During install on an existing fat32 partition, whilst formatting the 
filesystem the installer crashes and returns the signal 9 error message. I 
downloaded the anaconda update 20001009.img with the same result.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Normal workstation install, either from cdrom, diskette or harddisk
2.Install on existing fat32 (w98se) partition, without any linux partitions
3.creating loopback filesystem
4. crash occurs during formatting filesystem

Problem only occurs when installing on a fat partiton. No problem at all when 
installing on a Linux partition.
