Description Vikas Bhandari 2001-01-09 02:30:40 UTC
When installing RH Linux 7.0 Workstation on a DELL INSPIRON 7000 and after 
selecting to do a partitionless install on a fat32 partition the installer 
creates the loopback filesystem on /dev/hda1, but reports the following 
error when it tries to format the file system:

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py",

Are you doing a hard drive install from the same partition as you are installing to?
