Description of problem:
I'm trying to convert a 30G HD over from WinXP after it crashed and 
burned.  Tried reinstalling a couple of time but would not get past 
the "YOU need to Verifiy your version of XP" window.
can go into command in safe mode but unable to do anything else.

I've been booting off a PCLinux CD and running Gnome to save my files 
on the disc.  Done that and now I'd like to install Fedora Core 3
I"ve tried using PMagic 8.0 to format the disc,,,previously NTFS 
format and keep getting a  "heads<255 and other garbage.
it finally says probe_partition_for_geom()
I've tried Disk Druid with same results.  
How can I fix this?
I'm running a WD30G
(C x heads + H) * sectors + S == A at disk_dos.c:495
is the last line.
I found a site that says this is a PMagic problem but no help in 
fixing it?
Please respond to my email.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC3 distributed by Sams books

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Installing FC3 on a NTFS system with windows crashed
2.Get all the way through anaconda and it stops and gives the dump

3.Unable to include the dump since this computer doesn't have a floppy

Actual Results:  getting the dump
