Description of problem:
I want to install Fedore core 1.92 on a Computer with GA-6VTXE(-A) 
VIA 694T motherboard with two Maxtordisks and A DVD and a HP CD-

First Bug: "Impossible to align partitions. Ignore?" My answer Yes. 
Coming right after Monitor question. Two times. One for each disk.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 1.92

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try again

Actual Results:  1. After any click
2. After click on hda

Expected Results:  hangs

Additional info:

Installation impossible.

I do not dare to try automatic partioning, because a want it to 
install on disk 2 hdb partion 1 and I don't want to risk, that my 
Windows 98 and Windows XP installations are overwritten in disk 1.

May be Fedore will only install on a clean system.

On another computer it could not se my IT8212 RAID controller on a GA-
8SQ800 Ultra motherboard, but found my single SATA disk.

Lesson don't mix two disksystems.

 1) Is this still happening with FC2 final ?

 2) If yes, move the bug to anaconda and they'll be able to figure
    out where's the most appropriate place for the bug. Its certainly
    not a GConf bug
