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