Description of problem:
This is not really a grub issue it is an installer issue but I cannot
remember the installers name.

I first tried to upgrade my previous fedora 64 install and the installer
crashed while installing something i was not standing there so I do
not know where.  It gave a stack dump and said this is likely to be a
bug.  I tried to copy the text and save it but the virtual terminals
did not work.

next I tried a clean install but did not format the drive.  This
completed but when I rebooted it would not recognize my usb keyboard
or mouse so I could not do much with it.

I next did a new install and formated the partition.  This time I
watched it and it crashed while it was installing the boot loader I
think.  It did the format then a couple quick things flashed by and
then a stack dump.  So anyway this must be why you recomend a seperate
 boot partition.  Grub was not functional and could not boot much of
anything.

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


How reproducible:
Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:
installed fedora 64 from dvd on an athlon 64. 
installer failed for me 2 out of 3 times so.  My machine has been
totally solid for other fedora 64 releases and windows 2k.

Could you attach the actual dump you received?  Without that, it's
basically grasping at straws to know what happened.
