3. Selected mount points for linux and fat32 partitions 
4. Selected additional packages to install
5. Hit Next when asked.
6. Error occurred as installer started to format linux partitions. formatted / okay. Error occurred while formating /home.

    if self.method.systemMounted (self.fstab, self.instPath, self.hdList.selected()):
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/image.py", line 46, in systemMounted
    self.loopbackFile = mntPoint + fstab.filesystemSpace(mntPoint)[0][0] + \
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/fstab.py", line 258, in filesystemSpace
    space.append((mntpoint, isys.fsSpaceAvailable(topMount + '/' + mntpoint)))
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/isys.py", line 16, in fsSpaceAvailable
    return _isys.devSpaceFree(fsystem)
