Description Adam Potter 2004-11-13 23:48:20 EST

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5)

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

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot from either FC3 install disc 1, or boot cd.
2.Choose language.
3.As installer loads, error appears.
    

Actual Results:  I got the error message that is being reported.

Expected Results:  Continued through the installation.

Additional info:
