Comment 1 Randall C. LaPlante 2005-01-30 05:40:53 EST
I was tryingo install fc3 on my system using a workaround I found on 
fedoraforom.org.  I started in Expert mode and ran into an error 
messagewithin 2-3 steps:  "Assertion((c* HEADS +H)* SECTORS+S==A) at 
disk_dos.c:495 in function_probe_partition_for_geom () failed.  Then, 
depending on whether I ignored or canceled, I would get "error 
opening /dev/sdc" then sdd,sde, sdf -- then it woul disappear.  Then 
the error would repeat itslf (from the original "assertion"  two or 
three times until thefinal insall screen. t ha poin, I recieve the 
messsssge:  An unhandled exception has occurred.  This is most likely 
a bug. Please copy the full text of this exception and file a 
detailed bugreport against anaconda at 
I am not new to computers but am a linux newbie.
