This bug only happens when I try to add an existing Win-Fat32 partion to fstab
during the install procedure. I tried the install now without adding the mount
point for the win partion and it worked fine.
Please verify brock.
Was this an install where you were installing Red Hat Linux to a FAT partition?

Related to bug 17846.
I installed in in a ext2 partition.

I had the same problem. I have a 486 laptop and am doing an NFS custom install
from a mounted RH 7.0 CD #2. The laptop had (and still has until formated) a
FAT16 parition on it, but the install is being done completely over the
network. I'm at a complete stand still till this is fixed. Any more info I can
provide, please let me know.
I encountered this bug (or one indistinguishably similar to it). The system had
one FAT32 partition [Win98] as /dev/hda1, which I assigned a mount point at
installation time. Linux was installed to several other partitions [ext2] --
/dev/hda1 was involved in the installation only in that I set up a mount point
for it. I used a custom installation [via CD] and opted to select individual
packages. The installer then crashed after formatting the relevant filesystems
but before displaying the "transferring installation image [...]" progress bar. I
was able to perform a successful installation by EITHER not setting up a
mount point for /dev/hda1 OR by not opting to select individual packages.
I didn't try both together, but I assume that would work too.
Please verify Brent.
