Description Brian Dean 2004-11-13 10:39:50 UTC

Description of problem:
Whenever I try to install Fedora Core 3 I often get the following
assertion failure:

Assertion (heads < 256) at disk_dos.c:486 in function 
probe_partition_for_geom() failed

Eventually, this causes the installation to crash.  I think
there is a problem with Fedora reading the disk geometry of
my hard drive correctly.  I don't have this problem with 
Red Hat 9.0 which will "complain" about it but will go ahead
and install and run properly anyway.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 3

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
I don't know if the problem is reproducable on other systems.

Actual Results:  See above.
