Description hjl 2002-09-01 00:39:23 EDT
Anaconda doesn't support terabye disk
since it does

        totalSectors = float(disk.dev.heads
                             * disk.dev.sectors
                             * disk.dev.cylinders)

It is a big no-no. I am uploading a patch.

Python 2 handles all this correctly so its fixed in 'null'.
