F11 beta crashes at disk.commit step

Description of problem:
I'm trying to install from the F11 beta ppc netinst CD onto an Apple Powerbook Pismo (yeah, it's
ancient, but it's the only spare hardware I've got). It gets to the "writing partitioning to disk"
stage and then fails, but not before having wiped the old disk partition info :-(
The machine had had F-9 as well as OS9 and OSX on it in different partitions. I first tried the
"replace existing Linux system" option; that crashed in the same place, but with a traceback
that I think was different from the one attached (unfortunately I did not save it). I then tried
the "use entire drive" option, but that still crashes. I was able to save off the traceback using
the "scp trace to someplace" function, so I'll attach it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
whatever's on the beta ISO
Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to install ...
I'm using text mode install because graphical install doesn't work at all (screen is unreadable)
