This is my 2nd report.  At first this seemed to be bug #19928,
but I downloaded the update disk, and wrote it to a floppy.
Booted the install disk, told it I had updates, and it asked
for the anaconda update disk at the appropriate time.

Then it proceeded to format the root partition (a FAT) and after
trying to build the filesystem, it died.  Very much like in bug
#19928, but update-disk-20001009.img is supposed to fix that.

Maybe this is some other pre-reported bug, or is it something new?

Here's the bugzilla info:

You are right...the updates disk does not really fix the problem.  It displays a
dialog if you try to put / on a DOS 16-bin < 32M partition saying that "System
partitions must be on Linux Native partitions."  It should have displayed the
error message for DOS 16-bin >= 32M too, but it did not.  Basically, putting /
on a FAT partition didn't work very well in 7.0.  This has been fixed in 7.1, so
I'm resolving as 'Current Release."
