I've committed a fix on Rawhide which doesn't help you much right now. If you
can attach your partition table to this bug report, we can probably come up with
a workaround for you. You can get your partition table by waiting until the
graphical installer has come up, hitting cmd-alt-f2, and running:
parted /dev/hda p
It's also possible your disk might be /dev/sda, in which case you'd use that

This is what popped up when I followed your instructions.

I am not clear on the method required to attach a printout of the partition table to the bug report. How
would I get that from an uninstalled system to the one which I use to access the web? I am trying to install
FC4 to an Apple powerbook G3, which has two HFS+partitions and one ext3fs. Is the installer capable of
writing to an HFS+ partition? My existing systems cannot read ext3fs.
Mark - please try the tree here which has a parted update
To use GOLD FC-4 media arther than that tree.
Take the updates.img and use dd to write it to a USB key, then use
that with "linux updates" at the yaboot boot: prompt.
You will need to dd it to the entire device,
so make sure you backup whatever may be on the USB drive first.
You can dosomething like this:
dd if=updates.img of=/dev/sda
Replace /dev/sda with the name of your USB key drive, though.
