Description of problem:

I tried to install FC3 from the CDROM. The installation always fails
with assertion error (heads > 0) in disk_dos.c:485 function
probe_partition_for_geom. If I choose ignore, I then get assertion
error (sectors <= 63) on line 490, after which the installation
program exits.

Additional info:

I'm having 2 disks in this machine. The first one contains two ~10GB
BSD partitions. The second disk contains two 30GB FAT32 partitions and
a 13GB "extended DOS" partition with NTFS file system.
