Description Hunter Matthews 2002-07-31 13:17:08 EDT
Description of Problem:
This is a clone athlon 750 with IBM IDE disk drive.

During gui install of "workstation", it prints a dialog box that says 
your probed and BIOS disk geometries mismatch, blah blah. 
"Ignore" and "Continue" are the two button choices I believe.

Hitting Ignore causes the same (exact) dialog box to reappear.
Hitting Ignore again causes the attached traceback.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Anaconda in limbo2
