Doing a clean install of FC5 where /(ext)3, /boot(ext3) and SWAP were going to
the first disk of sda.  All other 5 disks were supposed to become a RAID6
software raid.  PERC2/DC is set to MASSSTORAGE.  Just before it starts
installing packages it threw an exception that I've caught on a floppy.

Just reproduced the error.  It formatted all the filesystems, transferred the
image to the hard disk for the install and then throws an exception again.  I've
got a copy of it as well if anyone wants it.

In the Exception details it says

Caused by RAID6 -- fixed in CVS
Comment 4 Daniel J. Doughty 2006-07-11 14:52:59 EDT
I'm new to logging a bug.  So, how would I now try to install this again?  
Install from source RPMs, or download a "test" ISO from 
http://redhat.download.fedoraproject.org/pub/fedora/linux/core/test/5.90/i386/i
so/

I'm fairly experienced at unix, but since this is happening upon install, I'm 
a bit baffled as to how I should continue.  I sure don't want to wait until 
October for the full release of FC6.
