From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

Description of problem:
When the installer tries to format the partitions, it comes up with an error 
on /hda2.And restarts the computer. I formated the hard drive myself with 
another program, so is there a way I can stop the Red Hat Linux installer from 
formating it again.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Personal Desktop Config
2.Automatic partitioning    
3.Remove all linux partitions, remove all partitions, keep all partitions. 
Tryed all 3 options

Actual Results:  Error duing the formatting of the partition where Red Hat 
Linux will be installed.

Expected Results:  It should format it, and then start installing the OS

An error ocurred trying to format hda3. This problem is serious, and the 
install cannot continue.
Press <enter> to reboot your syste.

This happends on Compaq Proliant 2500 also. 

Does anyone know the answer to our problems? Upgrading seems to be the
only option!

There must be an other way!
