Description of problem:
On start of the anaconda installer, after selection of language, I get
a bug report error consisting of:
error: Bug: Assertion ((C * heads + H) * sectors + S == A) at
disk_dos.c:495 in function probe_partition_for_geom() failed.
Can continue by clicking ignore or cancel; install procedure continues
fine until disk partitioning..the error comes up again when
partitioning. Can still continue from this point by clicking ignore
or cancel multiple times; installation continues well until file
copying and drive formatting is about to begin. I then get the
message that there is an assertion error, and get the option to copy
the output or write an output dump to the floppy drive (which I did,
and will include with this report).
Dump to floppy works, and installer exits.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda from FC3 isos
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot from either FC3 install disc 1, or boot cd.
3.As installer loads, error appears.
Actual Results: I got the error message that is being reported.
Expected Results: Continued through the installation.
