I got this from traceback errors;

function ped_partition_get_flag() failed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot rawhide image iso
2. choose manual installation
Actual Results: error dialog comes up
I guess there is a disagreement between how the partition tool I used
to resize NTFS and create the other partitions when I initially got
this laptop and the fedora partition tool. Hardware browser in my FC2
installation shows there are gaps of < 1MB between my partiton.
However I was able to install FC3 Test1 successfully on it (with those
< 1MB gaps).

Output of (FC2) parted print
Fixed on Friday in CVS, just not built yet.
