Description of problem:
The instalator reported problems while trying probe to partition 
geometry (function probe_partition_for_geom()). I was able to 
complete the partitioning process though (the first report appeared 
just before that) yet it all ended before the final install procedure 
(package install).

I have an XP Home Edition on my first partition (10GB) and I felt 
like giving Fedora Core a try on another (free) 10GB partition (/dev/
hda2). I chose automatic partitioning leaving the existing WinXP NTFS 
partition. No luck though.

It's a Toshiba laptop.

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:

to provide a fairly good description)
