What disks do you have in the machine, what is their original partition layout,
and what steps are you taking in the installer regarding partitioning?  Please
attach your original layout and the one created by the installer.

I have a similar problem, albeit not using NFS but HTTP install.

File "/usr/src/build/648982-i386/install//usr/lib/anaconda/fsset.py", line 1861,
in setupDevice SystemError: lvcreate failed for swaplv

I tried lots of things. Reordering the logvol entries, changing options, almost
everything. I don't know what I did to cause this (because at one point it
worked fine).
