Description of problem:
Fedora 11 x86_64 June 9 release DVD: Anaconda installer shows disks, but not partitions; does not show existing RAID partitions; insists that one must choose a _disk_ (not a partition or RAID volume) to install on; little checkbox at bottom that apparently should lead to custom partitioning does not work, brings up error message (not saved due to not yet having bugzilla account)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 11 x86_64 June 9 release DVD

How reproducible:
Happened all three times tried. Install fails.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot install DVD, click through language, keyboard, time zone screens
2.Try any partition option that is NOT use-ALL-of-one-of-the-available-disks 
3.Error message; only button options available here is Exit installer and bugzilla report
Actual results:
Complete show-stopper; install fails.

Expected results:
Move into manual partitioning/RAID setup dialogs/menus

Additional info:
Disks: pair of identical Western Digital 1TB disks, each with 4 pre-existing primary partitions in RAID 1 (i.e. 4 RAID volumes)

Joel - this looks related to the RAID UI bug I assigned to you yesterday.  Think you could check this one out too?  Thanks.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '11'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 
Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2010-06-28 08:53:10 EDT
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
