You're saying this happens in an unmodified Mandy 10 install? Odd... FC2 
test1 which comes with virtually the same kernel (2.6.3) I haven't heard 
of any problems with it and the installer... I do not have FC2 test1, 
but FC1 w/2.6.4, If this is so, then you must report this as the bug it 
is for Mandrake 10 (and potentially other) distros...
