Have you encountered the same error with Fedora 9?
Comment 3 Rafal Chlebosz 2008-06-05 07:28:47 EDT
I tried with Fedora 9 (short time after release) and I got this same error. 
After this I tried to use Live CD (Fedora 9) and this works without any 
problem but I didn't install to external USB drive.

Currently I have diffrent hardware and I don't know if I can reproduce this 
Comment 4 Andy Lindeberg 2008-06-05 09:35:44 EDT
I'm going to close this report then. If you encounter the error again, please
reopen this and report it.
