Description of problem:
Bear with me as this is my first bugzilla post.  Had anaconda up and
running.  Chose a fresh install and then to remove all linux
partitions.  Recieved a warning that the partitions weren't aligned
correctly, and chose to ignore it.  On the partitioning page, anaconda
fails and produces an anaconda dump file, which is included.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 2 test 2

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Begin Installation of Fedora Core 2 Test 2
2.Choose a new installation
3.Tell it you want to remove all existing linux partitions
4.Click next

Actual Results:  Recieved a popup telling of a failure and then saved
the dump file onto disk.

Expected Results:  Should partition correctly.

It happens every time I try to install.  I haven't gotten to define
any partitions.  I get to the screen where it asks you what you'd like
to do with the hard drive (remove linux partitions, remove all
partitions, use existing free space).  I select 'remove linux
partitions' and click next and thats when the error happens.  So far,
I've tried to install three times.

Just as an update.  I have tried downloading from other mirror sites,
burning using different programs (all at slowest write speed possible)
and different cdrom media and always get the same error.
