Disk Druid kills install with FAT drive left highlighted.

INSTALL NOTES - KDE Workstation
Used Disk Druid to partition drive. No errors reported.
Runs fine until package install then hangs with no errors.
+Checked F1 screen got following error dump.
File "/usr/lib/python1.5/threading.py", line 376, in __bootstrap
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress.py", line 16 in run
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1072, in doInstall
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/fstab.py", line 151, in savePartitions
SystemError: Error partitioning drive /tmp/hda: Device or resource
I had the highlight on the /dev/hda in Disk Druid before going to the next
screen but had NOT defined /dev/hda to be mounted anywhere.
A reboot and a run of fdisk for partitioning and making sure the windows
drive was NOT selected after assigning partitions to mount points allowed
package install to go through.
There was a known issue with the drive resource not getting released in this cut
of the beta. That issue has been resolved in the latest cut of the installer.
