Description of problem:
FC2-test2 installer can not detect correctly partition table of my
hard disk (Maxtor 80GB, LBA).
There are so many "Free space" with size <1, the same Start & End point.
See screenshots:

The same problem with FC2-test1. But RH9 and FC1 installers work well,
partition table was detected correctly.

The hard disk was partitionned by Partition Magic 8.0.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Disk Partitioning Setup
2. Manually partition with Disk Druid
3. Next
4. Disk Setup --> problem!

Actual Results:  Stopped installation by myself because I have problem
with FC2-test1: by proceeding the installation, access mode of my hard
drive was modified by installer(?) and GRUB cann't boot at all. The
problem has fixed by redefining manually accesse mode in BIOS.

Expected Results:  Would like to see Anaconda could detect correctly
HDD like FC1!
