Can you please attach the error message, even though it was pretty unhelpful to you?  Thanks.
Comment 2 Jeff Guerdat 2009-04-01 15:56:13 EDT
Error message is:

An unexpected exception has occurred.  This is most likely a bug.  Please save a copy of the detailed exception and file a bug report against anaconda.

I tried to save the exception report but was unsuccessful.  The first time I was able to navigate the existing file system (my F10 install) and create a new directory but could never save - the Cancel and Open buttons didn't do anything.  I had to power cycle to get out.  Subsequent attempts wouldn't find a local file system at all but allowed me to exit and reboot.
Comment 3 David Lehman 2009-04-02 23:12:10 EDT
This should be fixed in anaconda-
Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 08:54:09 EDT
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
