Description of problem:
Multiple assertions failed over the course of the installation process
- something about disk_dos.c. Apparently something doesn't like my
In any case I ignored them and continued the installation process.
After I finished package selection, the installer crashed, gave me an
option of putting a crash dump onto a floppy, and then told me it was
safe to reboot.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Burn Fedora 3 onto 4 CDs
2. Attempt to install Fedora 3
3. Observe and ignore/cancel strange "Bug" "Assertion failed" errors.
4. Insert disk to save the crash dump after finishing the install.
Actual Results: Fedora fails to install.
Expected Results: Fedora should have installed without my ever having
seen messages about assertions and disk_dos.c and partition geometry.
Then it should have not crashed.
