Description of problem:
I am booting with my laptop Compaq Armada E500 on the installation CDROM 
of RedHat 7.1... I specify I want to use Disk Druid to create 2 partitions 
(1 for Linux and the other one as LinuxSwap). Then I select all the 
packages I want to be installed and the setup package starts and then it 

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot with installation CD
2.Answer all screens
3.use Disk Druid to specify hda1 of 10Gb (Linux) and hda2 of 1.5Gb 
4.let it "format the hard drive"

Actual Results:  An Error message appeared, I saved it to a floppy and 
copied it the Additional Information field.

Expected Results:  create the partitions and start installing all the 
software packages selected.

Can you try booting with 'ide=nodma'?  Does that help?
