Description of problem:
At our educational institution we use Removable Hard Disk Drives in caddies as there a few classes that utilise the same machines. Two noticable things happen when trying to install to these drives
1. The splash screen shows no "Fedora Core 4" graphic; and
2. After you inform the installer to do a normal graphical install, it hangs when it tries to mount the root filesystem, saying a 'root=' argument needs to be specified.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from CD/DVD
2. Run installer normally
Actual Results: Installer crashed before install was initialised.
Expected Results: anaconda should have run normally.
Can you provide the exact error you receive?
