Description of problem:
I've made several attempts to install FC5 using JFS. All of them failed at the
very end of installation (after copying and installing packages). I keep getting
message that there was an unhandled exception and I should insert floppy to
write a bug report. Then it restarts my machine. When installing on ext3
everything is just fine.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Insert install DVD.
2. boot with: linux jfs resolution=1024x768
3. Install as usual.
Unhandled exception at the very end of installation.
Installation ends successfully, system is rebooted.
JFS isn't supported. It looks like this is being caused due to JFS not
supporting the xattrs as needed for selinux.
