Description of problem:
This is an install on a Dell Latitude C610. The install goes fine until just 
after the filesystems are formatted then anaconda crashes. See the URL above to 
get the anaconda dump file.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot off CD
2. Use graphical or text based install
3. Select laptop/gnome/software develoment
4. Option to install grub on mbr...format all filesystems as ext3, 
migrate /home from ext2 to ext3...configure x. I use fdisk to create partitions

Actual Results:  Anaconda crashed after formatting the filesystems

Expected Results:  I expected after the filesystems were formatted that the 
installation would determine the packages needed and start copying them to the 
hard drive.

Additional info:

Below is disk layout, currently managing mbr with grub:

hda1 is NTFS and contains Windows 2000 (10,0001.4 mb)
hda2 is unformatted (6,000.8 mb)
hda3 is / for debian (xfs) (94.1 mb)
hda5 is intended / for redhat (94.1 mb)
hda6 is swap (972.7 mb)
hda7 is /home (972.7 mb)
hda8 /tmp for debian (xfs) (478.5 mb)
hda9 /var for debian (xfs) (478.5 mb)
hda10 is intended /tmp for redhat (478.5 mb)
hda11 is intended /var for redhat (478.5 mb)
hda12 is /usr for debian (xfs) (4,282.9 mb)
hda13 is intended /usr for redhat (4,282.9 mb)
