Default Kickstart install fails when formatting LogVol00 - Fedor 8 install

Hi,

I have a Dell PE2300 that I am attempting to install Fedora 8 on. I am
doing an automatic install using a kickstart file (that is automatically
generated for me by another application to customise the configuration).


The install fails when it attempts to format the root partition with the
following error:


An error occurred trying to format volgroup00/logvol00
this problem is serious and the install cannot continue

Switching to the console (alt-f6) shows no more information about the error.

I have tried a manual install (with the default Fedora partition scheme)
and that worked fine. So I am at a loss as to why this is tripping up.
I ran the same install on another PE2300 yesterday with the same disk
configuration which went off without a hitch.


Can anyone suggest how to proceed to debug this issue? Any assistance
greatly appreciated.


Regards,
Langdon
