Problem description:
The installation (trough anaconda) of fedora core3 Distribution Iso Dvd
produced a grub stage2 hang on the Pc, with the following disk configuration
reported by Disk Druid on installation panel:

PC disk configuration
Disk 1 (SAMSUNG SV2044D)
/dev /hda
        /dev/hda1               vfat    1       64
        /dev/hda2                       65      1334
                /dev/hda5       vfat    65      1212
                /dev/hda6       vfat    1213    1334
        /dev/hda3               ntfs    1335    1844
        /dev/hda4               ext3    1845    2481 <------Fedora core 3 
installed here

Description of disk configuration: there are three Primary partitions
(hda1,hda3,hda4) and one extended partition (hda5,hda6). Partitions hda3,hda4
defined AFTER extende partition.
Primary and extended partitions defined under W98 with FDISK and the other
ppartions defined under XP.

Disk 2 (Maxtor 92041U4)
        dev/hdc1        vfat    1       1785
        dev/hdc2        swap    1786    1912
        free space              1913    2482

Problem work around
When installing Linux on the second disk in the free space available, it
works. It works also, in defining on Disk1 (the disk that fails with the
above configuration) a primary partition and an extended partition with all
logical disks inside this extended partition (vg when no primary partitions
are defined after the extended partition).
