So, I'm doing a fresh install of Fedora 17 from DVD. I get to the

Here's where I have trouble. I need 100 GB. So, 1 GB = 1000MB, so I
should enter 100x1000, no?
I can't believe that Anaconda is so broken, so it must be me.
It is broken very badly! When I was trying to setup a custom partition
layout with LVM on RAID and I made a mistake and wanted to correct it,
installer simply crashed. I had to create disk partitions step by step
without doing any changes. On error installation was finished and had to
be started again!
So it's all about Anaconda stability! If you value your time you'd
better go with default options or don't change anything once it was done.
