LiveCD Volume to Shrink Error

I am using the Fedora 11 LiveCD to install Linux to existing Windows XP Dell 530s desktop with 260 GB free space. I want to do a dual boot Window/Linux installation so I chose Volume to Shrink. But recieved the follow error which is attached.

Here is a excerpt:

anaconda exception report
Traceback (most recent call first):
File "/usr/lib/python2.6/site-packages/parted/geometry.py", line 128, in intersect
return Geometry(PedGeometry=self.__geometry.intersect(b.g etPedGeometry()))
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/storage/partitioning.py", line 501, in getBestFreeSpaceRegion
free_geom = extended.geometry.intersect(_range)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/storage/partitioning.py", line 798, in allocatePartitions
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/storage/partitioning.py", line 587, in doPartitioning

File "/usr/lib/anaconda/storage/partitioning.py", line 191, in doAutoPartition
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 205, in moveStep
rc = stepFunc(self.anaconda)
File "/usr/lib/anaconda/dispatch.py", line 128, in gotoNext
