During install on an existing fat32 partition, whilst formatting the 
filesystem the installer crashes and returns the signal 9 error message. I 
downloaded the anaconda update 20001009.img with the same result.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Normal workstation install, either from cdrom, diskette or harddisk
2.Install on existing fat32 (w98se) partition, without any linux partitions
3.creating loopback filesystem
4. crash occurs during formatting filesystem

Comment 2 Willem Jacobusse 2001-02-19 09:04:35 UTC
Problem only occurs when installing on a fat partiton. No problem at all when 
installing on a Linux partition.
