Description FB 2005-08-14 10:19:17 EDT
Description of problem:

When installing Fedora Core 4 from the x86_64 DVD (checked successfully) after 
partitionning/formatting, I systematically have a crash in anaconda.
Note: the MB is an ASUS a8V Deluxe. The target drive for installation is an
IDE disk, on the Promise SA378 interface. Auto partitionning was used, I also
tried manually... no change.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot from DVD
2.install graphically
3.choose packages  
Actual results:

anaconda crashes

Expected results:

should go on with installation of requested packages
