please note my new email address:  trryhend@gmail.com
Description of problem:
During early stages of install, I encountered 2ea consecutive errors,
windows titled "Bug". In choosing to ignore each time I was able to
continue to next step. Errors occurred after choosing keyboard. 
Errors occurred when asked what type of install, which drives to
partition, manual or auto partitioning.  I chose to click ignore
[twice] each time for each error window, after clicking [Ignore] twice
on each error, it will continue.   Error messages contained in "Bug"
windows follows:

"Assertion (heads < 256) at disk_dos.c:486 in function
probe_partition_for_geom() failed.                       		          
     	    [Ignore]  [Cancel]

"Assertion ((C * heads + H) * sectors + S == A) at disk_dos.c:495 in
function probe_partition_for_geom() failed.   
[Ignore]   [Cancel]

Have crash dump file: anacdump.txt
Would like to submit it to proper individuals.
