When doing a standard workstation install, I set everything up to the
point of having it start formatting the drive i was installing it on (a
10K RPM WD 9.1GB Ultra160 SCSI HDD). It hung for a LONG time on
formatting the /boot partition (sda1) and then exit out giving an option
to save the bug to post here. Here is a raw copy of the text file it made:
Traceback (innermost last):

Did you choose to check for bad blocks when formatting?
No, I did not do a check for bad blocks when formatting. These are brand new
hard drives though, they work with NT4 and 98 no problem.
What SCSI controller is in this system?
I am going to pass this on to a QA engineer to attempt to reproduce this issue.
Hey, I think I have the same bug. When formating the partititions of my Seagate
Cheetah with a tekram DC390 F, it crashes, Aarrghh...
Are there any 'sense error' messages on virtual console 3 or 4?
