Description of problem:
  When performing a new Fedora Core 3 installation utilizing the linux
xfs option, the installation hangs during the finalization process. 
During the installation, I chose to make all the partitions, except
swap, xfs.

  Oddly, after the first installation attempt fails you can perform a
second attempt and the installation is then successful.  

  All of my installations were on disks that previously had other
files system types like ext3, or ufs2.   

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 3 Release 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Attempt a fresh installation of Fedora Core 3 using the linux xfs


Actual Results:  The install appears to hang after install the xfs
utilities on disk 4.

Expected Results:  The installer should have finished the final
installation routine, and asked the user to reboot.

Additional info:

I had the same results on three seperate systems, attempting the
installation a number of times on each.  I also downloaded and created
a new set of disks and had the same results.  Both sets of disks
passed the media tests on a number of different computers.
