I also have a same problem during the installation of Fedora 9 x86_64. The bug
show up while trying to run dosfslabel on an existing vfat partition. I have get
around it by not mounting it during the installation.  

Comment 3 Andy Lindeberg 2008-08-01 15:22:06 UTC
This should be fixed in rawhide. Please try either the latest build or F10
Alpha, and feel free to reopen this report if you encounter the same problem.
