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 ?
  omtf/run(id, dispatch)
 File "/usr/lib/anaconda/test.py", line 496, in run
 File "usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 242, in MoveStep
   rc = apply(finc, self.bindArgs(args))
 File "usr/lib/anaconda/packages.py", line 582, in TurnOnFilesystems
 File "usr/lib/anaconda/fsset.py" line 1477, in createLogicalVolumes
 File "usr/lib/anaconda/fsset.py" line 2131, in setupDevice
   raise SystemError, "lvcreate failed for %s" %s(self.name,)
SystemError:lvcreate failed for LogVol00 

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

How reproducible:

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.

Additional info:

Perhaps it's the laptop's fault.
