Error informing the kernel about modification to partition /dev/hda3

I downloaded FC4, sum sh1 was ok, Media test was ok.

I tried to install on Desktop and laptop, I received this error message:

"Error informing the kernel about modification to partition /dev/hda3- Device or resource busy. This means Linux won’t know about any changes you made to /dev/hda3 until you reboot – so you should not mount it or use it in any way before rebooting".

Note: /dev/hda3 in my case is root (/).

I found many links for the same error message (was not helpful for me).

http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/b...8/msg00111.html

I can reach up to the process of "Begin installation", and it hang there. Some time I received that error message, some time it is just hanging.

Have you tried without creating new partitions?

I do not remember ,,,because I have tried many scenarios.

The link that you refer me to it :

First partition your harddisk with a linux system rescue CD, then
Does it mean rescue CD which is belong to FC4 or can be any other ?

Though when you click the "linux system rescue CD" it directed you to another URL which is not related to what he meant
