while trying to use more than the / partition at install time

it was custom partitioning. also it says it was unable to inform kernel about
modifications to /dev/sda5.
/dev/sda5 was not modified in any way. it happened both in live cd and in dvd
install. once i used only /dev/sda1 for / , and no othe partition, install from
live cd was ok (that's why i can send you this message :))
also, one thing i've noticed, i could not mount /dev/sda5 from live cd (gnome),
but usb disk was automounted just fine, again that's why i can send this file
now :)

The information we've requested above is required in order
to review this problem report further and diagnose/fix the
issue if it is still present.  Since there have not been any
updates to the report since thirty (30) days or more since we
requested additional information, we're assuming the problem
is either no longer present in the current Fedora release, or
that there is no longer any interest in tracking the problem.

Setting status to "CLOSED INSUFFICIENT_DATA".  If you still
experience this problem after updating to our latest Fedora
release and can provide the information previously requested, 
please feel free to reopen the bug report.

Thank you in advance.

Note that maintenance for Fedora 7 will end 30 days after the GA of Fedora 9.
