Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
An unhandled exception has occured. This is most likely a 
bug. Please copy the full text of this exception and file a detailed bug report 
against anaconda at 

Traceback(most recent call last): 
File "/var/tmp/anaconda-", line 792 in next 
ZeroDivisionError: fload division 

Expected results:
No error

Additional info:
Exception was not occurred without GateKeeper(GK) LUN, but was occurred with GK
(256 LUNs and 60 LUNs). 

The error of RHEL4.5 seems to happen when there is a very small size volume 
like GK. 

reproduce this without creating ks.cfg and could reproduce.
Error was also occurred during making partition by using Disk Druid.

According to the analysis of Fujitsu, it seems to be caused by totalsector value
(= 0) of GK.

Comment 2 Joel Andres Granados 2008-11-03 14:08:21 UTC
This bug is not planned for RHEL4.8 and will not go in into the next versions of RHEL4 as it goes into production2 cycle.  The best way to address this issue is to test in fedora and/or RHLE5 and reopen another bug for eacho of those products (if the bug is present there, that is).
