Description of problem:
The installer crashes every time I try to install.

Errors were reported through install process about partition not ocupying all of the space and / or 
trying to read outside of the bounds of the device.

I don't see any information about the Amanda backup scheduler in this bug 
report.  Did you assign the bug to the wrong component, or did you forget to 
include what Amanda is doing wrong.  Ifso, please attach your amanda.conf and 
disklist, and information about your tape drive, changer, etc.

Closing due to lack of response.
