Description of problem:
I can't install RedHat 7.3 on a RAID drive that is larger than 1 terabtye.
Actually, it's 1.1 terabytes in size.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select Custom Install
2. Manually Parition with disk Druid
3. It crashes
Actual Results: It crashes
Expected Results: It should allow the creation of the partions and selecting
the partions for which mounts and continuing further further installation.
Choosing fdisk to create the partitions first and then going on to disk druid
causes the same problem.
I'll try to attach the anacondadumpt results to this bug.

Anaconda Dump file from install
Tyan 2462 Dual Athlon Motherboard
2 Athlan 2100+ MP Processors
2 3Ware 7850 RAID Cards
16 Maxtor 160 GB IDE Drives connected to the 3Ware RAID cards
8 Drives to each card, each configured as a RAID 5
Total usual space is 1.1 TB on each card.
3 Netgear Gigabit NIC's
This should be fixed in our current beta release. I'd be curious if it works
This will be a production machine. Do you feel fairly confident that the beta
will be stable? Does the beta contain the 2.4.19 kernel?
Red Hat Linux 8.0 is now out so you can try that instead of a beta.
