Can you describe your system (disks, memory, cpu) and how you performed the installation?

lshw of system
System was F10, with
/dev/sda1 as ext3 (boot)
/dev/sda2 lvm (ext4 root, swap)
/dev/sdc1 swap (usb)
Installed from rawhide boot.iso
formatted /dev/sda, /dev/sdc
Is this reproducable with F11 RC? No one here has seen this bug in significant amounts of testing. If you are able to reproduce, can you please give us thorough instructions on what you did with the partitioning UI so we can try to follow along? Thanks.

Sorry, Never got around to do an RC test. Sidetracked.
I think, I did the partitioning, and just before the "write to disk" step.
I may have clicked back to verify ext4 selection.

Mine was the bug just duplicated against this one. RC2 Live CD.
format enabled on:
LUKS encrypted volume on:
RAID 1 on:
/dev/sda2 (primary) /dev/sdb2 (primary) on:
Seagate 1TB SATA disks connected to:
Asus P5Q Pro mobo
I tried so many combinations yesterday this particular anaconda could have been either encrypted or not encrypted, as I attempted the latter when the former failed. Anaconda's ability to raise a DHCP addr was hit or miss.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Can't reproduce this problem on the latest rawhide tree.
