Fedora 8 on HP DL380 G3

I had FC6 upgraded to F7, but I just want to wipe it and install Fedora 8, since upgrades never fail to cause problems.

When I boot to the live DVD and run the installation, I can see my previous partitions, I can remove them and create new partitions for the installation.

Then when the installation starts I get an error that says "Unable to format cciss/c0d0 this error is serious and the installer cannot continue" or something along those lines.

Nothing in /var/log/messages or dmesg is really helpful. Very frustrating

Ended up using fdisk to delete all partitions, wrote the table to disk, rebooted and now it works fine - don't ask me.
