I had a similar problem when using RHEL-4 on a ppc install.  When I
changed from an normal install on standard partitions to using LVM2 and
resizing some partitions and not others, it keep crashing.

Since I was reinstalling and erasing the old install anyway, I ended up
fixing the partitions manually in fdisk prior to entering disk druid in
order to get it to work the way I wanted.

I looks like the LVM and RAID sections of the anaconda install still
need a little work :)
