Hmm... this is a "should never happen" case....  can you reproduce this happening?

I have not played with the installer since that day. I was able to install RH 
Linux 7.2, but it is not stable at all (apparently the boot partition does not 
meet booting constraints for my architecture???). I've had so much trouble with 
it that I've pretty much given up messing with it for now.

I'm sorry to hear that.  Well, if you happen to give the install another try,
please reopen this bug.  I'm closing as "worksforme" since I am unable to
duplicate this behavior.
