User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT)

Installer hangs when loading on FAT32 1gb Secondary harddisk with Win98 on 
active partion of 20gb SG harddisk. The system is Intel Celeron with 
intel810 chipset motherboard and 34mb ram. Obsrerved for GNOME, KDE and 
Custom(nothing selected)installition. When tried to install on the 5gb 
extended partition of 20gb HD it gave a BUG report without hanging on the 
same system.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot ftom CD of Redhat 7, use Graphical Installition process.
2.Format 1gb harddisk to FAT32 with only one partition.
3.Set / file system to it.
4. Go as steps come.
5. Hangs during creating loop back file system.

Actual Results:  Hangs.

Expected Results:  Next step of installition.

The Bug as reported by Linux 7 when installed on extended 5gb of 20gb. 
Here the system doesn't hang.
