This happened to me with an earlier installation. I backed up my
important information and reinstalled using the tried and true normal
vs. lvm. I thought, this is great, using LVM as default, then fail to
recognize this during the next installation.
Sorry no help. I had this happen to me during a test installation.
I recall someone speaking of a trick they used by allowing the previous
installation CD to boot up to media test, then swap discs to the FC4
disc and proceed with the installation. I don't recall if this problem
was overcome or not using this method.
All great discoveries are made by mistake.
