Description of problem:
The installer will crash when it goes to partition the drive. This happens both in the GUI installer and the text based one. I set the partitions to autoconfigure. Sometimes it will just hang, sometimes it gives me the following.
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", lin 1160, in ?
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/test.py", line 496, in run
File "usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 242, in MoveStep

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot FC4 DVD in a ThinkPad 600x
2. Do either text or GUI install
3. Choose desktop install
4. Choose default options (including auto-partition)
5. Hit go
Actual Results: As soon as you hit go, a small window pops up showing format progress. This move a small ammount and then hang. Sometimes a traceback appears, sometimes it doesn't.
Expected Results: It should have formated the drive.
Perhaps it's the laptop's fault.
