Comment 1 Paul Nasrat 2005-09-22 10:42:04 EDT
This has been fixed - there is an unofficial updated tree for fedora ppc

From fedora-ppc list

"At ftp://zeniv.uk.linux.org/pub/people/dwmw2/fc4-pegasos-20050922 there
is an updated FC4 tree with current errata, along with a few installer
changes backported from rawhide to make a single boot CD which works on
both 32-bit and 64-bit, Mac and CHRP hardware. 

This should fix the parted problem with free space during installation
on Macs, as well as actually installing on CHRP and pSeries machines
(and Pegasos II) which the original FC4 release didn't."
