Description of problem:
goes through first phase of formatting file system; hangs on swap.  doesn't appear to have started loading linux files.  when going back into 
windows, new partition no longer visible.  only snags witnessed had to do with partitioning... computer originally partitioned into c: (18gig) and 
(about 650meg).  repartitioned with fips.. partitioned the 18gig into 13gig/5gig. got a 'could not run command.com' error at the end, but new 
partition showed up as e: in windows (however, it could not be accessed via dos; abort, retry, fail).  started linux installation, partitioning with 
druid.. deleted the 650meg and 5 gig partitions to create the root and swap partitions.  Running 128ram, but gave actual amount of 133meg in 
swap partition (close as I could get).  

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.run installation
2.fill out options
3.make it start installing

Actual Results:  bug error at beginning of swap format

Expected Results:  installed everything
