After beginning the installation stage, I received a message that the 
partitions were insufficient for loading the software.  I backed up to the 
partition screen, reset the partitions, and clicked next through the other 
screens to get to the install stage again.  When I clicked "Next" to begin 
installation, I received an error message that I needed to reboot to make 
the partition changes effective.  I selected the reboot option, and after 
a second or two the following error came up, inside a window that told me 
to submit it to this website:

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py",
  line 20, in run
    rc=self.todo.doInstall ()
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py",line 1468,
  in do Install
     self.fstab.savePartitions ()
  File "fstab.py", line 221, in savePartitions
     sys.exit (0)
SystemExit: 0

I shut down my computer and rebooted manually, and it re-established the 
initial Red Hat menu.  I then followed the setup procedure as documented 
in the installation guide. 

Reproducible: Didn't try

This is fixed in the current Fisher beta.  You should be able to reboot your
machine w/o any ill affects, and continue with the install.
