The debug information by anaconda.

Exactly the same debug information is being returned while trying to initiate
Disk Druid.

I could not reproduce this issue - what did the original partition table look like?
Comment 4 Theocharis Athanasakis 2003-03-10 18:41:17 EST
I think this might be caused by a crashed hard disk...
The partition table is just a "primary DOS partition" (FAT32).
