Description of Problem:

Failed attempt to install Linux 7

How Reproducible:

did the steps below twice and got exactly the same result.

Steps to Reproduce:

1. boot from floppy witn CD 1 of operating system install
2. Create 3 partitions using Disk Druid as on Figure 5-8 of the Linux 7 
Installation Guide (page 44). 
3. Select both partitions to Format on screen in Figure 5-9 
4. Continued with install until I got to the Ready to Install screen 
(Figure 5-21 on page 61).  Clicked Next.  CD light went on and next I got 
the message:  Error mounting hda5 - invalid agruement.

The installer said this was probably a bug.  I asked that a trace be 
written to floppy.  I have pasted the contents of the floppy below and will 
attach the file when I get the chance.


Traceback (innermost last):
  File 
"/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line 20, in

    rc = self.todo.doInstall ()
