Description Francisco 2004-11-17 16:54:53 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041001

Description of problem:
On almost every "next" step I click on, I get an error that I can
ignore and continue (although I have to click 6 times). But after
selecting the packets to install, the installation crashes. 
This is the message I get "error: Bug: Assertion ((C * heads + H) *
sectors + S == A) at disk_dos.c:495 in function
probe_partition_for_geom() failed."

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Nothing special, the error is in the installation
2.I select all the packets.

Additional info:

Well, I've installed this release in my work and at home. The one
which crashes is at home. At work I only have WinXP and Fedora (dual
boot). At home I have winxp, suse9.1, and tried to have fedora too.
Maybe a problem of partitions? 
I have this structure
/dev/hda4            /                    reiserfs   acl,user_xattr  
     1 1
/dev/hda1            /windows/C           vfat      
users,gid=users,umask=0002,iocharset=utf8 0 0
/dev/hdb1            /windows/D           ntfs      
ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002,nls=utf8 0 0
/dev/hda5            /windows/E           ntfs      
ro,users,gid=users,umask=0002,nls=utf8 0 0
/dev/hda3            swap                 swap       pri=42          
     0 0

And I try to install fedora between E and the Suse (swap and reiser)
That's all
