Description of problem:
I get this when starting the installation of packages on my Toshiba A75-S211. 

An unhandled exception has occured. This is most likely a bug. Please copy
the full text of this exception and file a detailed bug report against anaconda at http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/

Traceback (most recent call last)

SystemError" pvcreate failed for <fsset.PartitionDevice instance at 0xb7b2e4ec>

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot from FC4 DVD
2. choose either graphical or text installation. Both fail.
3. start package installation

Actual Results:  popup "Exception Occured" dialog box

Additional info:

I tried manually changing the partitions to 'ext3' rather than LVM, but then I get a dialog box saying it can't format hda at the same point.

AFAIK, there's nothing wrong with the drive or laptop. Latest Ubuntu installed just fine and I had no problem later restoring Windows XP Home. I'm using the laptop right now. I don't see any options in the BIOS that seem relevent.
