Steps to Reproduce:

For my future reference:

Thanks for reporting this, this should be fixed in anaconda-188.8.131.52-1,
which should show up in rawhide today or tomorrow.
Please check that your local mirror has anaconda-184.108.40.206-1 in the Packages
directory for rawhide, and then download boot.iso from the images dir, after
checking the boot.iso modification time + date is later then that of anaconda-220.127.116.11-1, then do (or atleast start) a network installation from the
rawhide boot.iso. It should now see both your raidsets without problems.
Please let us know if this is fixed (or not).
failed, but at least it's a different error message..

What you are seeing now is bug 493691, which is caused by the fix for another
dmraid bug. That fix consists of changes in both anaconda and pyblock (the
python dmraid bindings anaconda uses), unfortunately we forgot to build
a new version of pyblock together with the latest anaconda release, causing
the traceback you are now seeing.
This is fixed in python-pyblock-0.42-1.fc11, which should be on todays rawhide.

This sounds like a good plan, you can find us in #anaconda on freenode. My nick
is hansg. If no new boot.iso with the new pyblock is available around that time
I'll do an updates.img with the fixed pyblock in it for you, so that you can
test once more, and we can hopefully close this bug.
Thanks for your patience.
your last update worked a treat and i'm happy to see this bug closed. thanks heaps to all involved, this has been a thorn in my side since Fedora 8
I was away while you posted your testing results on IRC (lunch), good to hear things work now, and you are very welcome. This is something which should have been fixed long ago.
