From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686; en-US; 0.7) Gecko/20010316

Made selections then backtracked via <back> button all the way to the
beginning.  First round thru was to be a 'partitionless' DOS install then
right before install was about to commence I backtracked to the druid setup
and changed to pre-made EXT2+Swap partitons.  Crashed and saved to floppy
when it tried to install.

Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
1.GUI custom install with partitionless DOS install selected
2.at the last point before the install takes over, backup until druid disk
3.selected pre-made ext2+swap partitions and continued

Actual Results:  It crashed, asked to save a bit of information to floppy
and waited for reboot.
On the subsequent reboot and install without all the backtracking the
install went fine no problems.

Expected Results:  should have performed the install

Verified this problem.  Thanks for your report.
Comment 3 Matt Wilson 2001-04-23 14:31:10 EDT
ugh.  I can see the problem here, and I'm totally rewriting this code, so
hopefully this won't happen in the next version.

Fixed with new dispatch code.
