Description Matt Domsch 2000-08-23 11:24:31 EDT
Traceback when creating a FAT16 >= 32MB partition in Disk Druid.

I got the anaconda traceback below installing RC2 via bootnet.img and NFS 
on my Dell Latitude CPiA system.
This system has a 30GB IDE hard disk, with ~14GB primary NTFS partition.  
I was attempting to create the following Linux partitions on the rest, 
using disk druid:
sda1 ~14GB NTFS5 partition
sda2 100MB /boot
sda3 extended
sda5 1GB /d (type FAT16 >= 32MB, as I want one partition visible to both 
Win2K and Linux)
sda6 256MB swap 
sda7 ~13GB / 

I did the same thing with /d being type ext2 and it worked fine.  Only 
when /d was type FAT16 > 32MB did I get the traceback.  I can always fdisk 
and format this partition later to make it FAT16, but I didn't expect 
anaconda to die here.

Thanks,
Matt Domsch
