Apple iBook laptop, bought circa Summer 2003: 12-inch screen; 900 MHz G3 CPU;

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.
