Description of problem:

Critical crash when installing FC3, I am a noob so can not offer a
greater description, however the installer advised me to post the
error here along with the crash dump.

How reproducible:

Try to Install FC3 on my second harddrive, choose the default
installation settings. Note that FC2 installed fine (about 6 months
ago). Feel free to contact me for more info.

The crash dump is too large to attach, feel free to contact me via
email and I will send it over. It is a 1.25MB text file.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2005-01-12 22:14:09 EST
You should be able to attach it here.  If it's too large, gzip it
first and then attach it.

Zipped dump text from the installer crash

I have attached the dump text, I should also point out that I think the fault
is with my hard drive. It is pointing to a partitioning error, as I have tried
installing Debian as well (I am familiar with this installation) and it failed
on the installation process post partitioning.

I have ordered a new harddrive and will try the FC3 installation again once it
arrives (in a few days) and will post my results here.

Yeah, you're getting errors reading every sector of the drive in the
syslog.  That points pretty definitively to the hard drive.
