The installer produces lots of these bugs during the whole
configuration before the installation begins.
If you keep ignoring (or canceling) them, you eventually end up with
an invitation to iussue a bug (as I'm doing now) and exiting to text
console. Needless to say the installation doesn't even start.
I'm trying to install on slave HD within a 3 discs system, configured
hda1 10 GB - Windows XP
hda2 30 GB - VFat32
hdb1 1 GB - Linux swap
hdb2 19 GB - Linux ext3
Hdd1 40 GB - Vfat32
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot your PC with FD3 disk 1 in your Cdrom reader
2. Follow all the preliminary steps (like choosing language and
configuring your network.
3. See how it crashes
Actual Results: The installations didn't even start.
Expected Results: The installation should have started
