Description of problem:
While trying to install Fedora Core 4 on my 12-inch Apple iBook, I get the 
following error just as it is about to begin the installation;

Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1) Boot the iBook from Disk 1 of the Fedora Core 4 for PPC.

install) and let Anaconda set up the partitions automatically
4) Before it starts to begin copying 
Actual results:

I had the same problem installing FC4 no a G3. The machine had 3 harddrives in 
it, hda, sda, and sdb. Mac OS 9 was installed on it before and it was working 
fine, but when I tried installing FC4 it keept giving me that error message. 
It also gave me the same message when I disconnected the SCSI drives, but when 
reconnected them and disconnected hda it installed fine. I guess it didn't 
like the mix of drives I had. I hope this help some of you in figuring out the 
cause of your problem.
