Description of problem:
Note: this is not a duplicate of bug 54998.
I attempted a server install of Fedora Core 2 for x86_64 on a dual Opteron244 machine with 8GB of RAM and 8 250GB drives. For this first attempt I did not modify the recommended disk partitions, even though large amounts of disk space would be left free. At the boot: prompt I entered "linux selinux".
I made a few (I think irrelevant) changes to the list of default packages.
I started the install. When I checked on the machine after 10-20 minutes, there was a text box titled Exception Occured. It began: An unhandled exception has occured. This is most likely a bug...
The contents of the text box were:
Traceback (most recent call last):

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt to install FC2 on a machine with a large number of drives.
2. boot: linux selinux
Actual Results: The installer displays an error message (see Description above).
Expected Results: The installer should run.
Does the CD pass the media check test ?
I verified the the ISO images with md5sum before burning the CDs. I can't remember if I
ran a media test on the CDs on the machine where I attempted the install.
I'm getting the same problem.
I'm doing an install over the net and not using CD's.
It does install when using 32bit Fedora 2.
Dual Opteron 244
Tyan Thunder K8S Pro Motherboard
3Ware 8506-8 controller with 8 hard drives
Tried several different raid combinations
I am running the latest bios. Also running latest
I asked a different department how they got their dual opteron,
3ware box to install. They said they got the same error I
got and just went 32bit mode.
