Angry Warning CentOS 4.3 Installation

Be careful when trying to install CentOS 4.3.

I was running CentOS 4.2 just fine and now I've lost it all. All my work down the digital drain...

Reading the fantastic Howto (Falko, R.E.S.P.E.C.T.) and try to install CentOS to my server, the installation will make a hard stop and freezes at "formatting boot file system" If you, like me, had a previous OS installed, you'll lose it all.

On the CentOS forum more people are experiencing the same problems on different types of systems and configurations. It seems to be some sort of bug. I think it probebly has to do something with LVM or RAID... but I'm not an expert!

I've already tried to do manual partioning, leaving the LVM out and just configure a /boot, / and swap. Still, no dice. I freezes again and again. Checking the dvd or cd media doesn't resolve anything either!

My system is a Supermicro 1010S-T server with a H8SSL-i board, AMD Opteron 170 2Ghz 2MB Dual Core and 2GB RAM (4 x Apacer 512MB). Datastorage is covered by 2 Seagate 80GB 7200rpm SATA hdd connected to a 3Ware 8006 SATA Raid 0,1 card. Also got a Supermicro IPMI card installed.
