Some more info about this problem:  Might be relevant...

HP Pavilion 6730 w/ 10GB HD

lspci lists:
00:1f.1 IDE interface: Intel Corporation 82801AA ide (REV 02)

Currently running RH72 great.  Boots off RH73 CD1 and goes into anaconda.
All goes well until you select "Upgrade an existing system" which then goes
off and comes back saying that:

You don't have any Linux partitions
You can't upgrade this system 

Going to shell shows that there is only one drive in /tmp and that is hdc,
so no parted or fdisk will reveal anything.

When booted into 72 parted shows:
--snip---
Warning: The operating system thinks the geometry on /dev/hda is
1323/240/63.
Therefore, cylinder 1024 ends at 7559.999M.  You should check that this
matches
the BIOS geometry before using this program.

Disk geometry for /dev/hda: 0.000-9768.383 megabytes

3       6792.188   9634.570  primary   ext3

5       9634.601   9767.460  logical   linux-swap  
--snip---

Also, if I select a workstation install (instead of an upgrade) and then
select manual setup with disk druid...  All the above partitions are there.
Then if I go to shell, /tmp/hda is there and parted /tmp/hda shows the above
information (except rather than Warning: it says Information:)

If I go back to the GUI and backtrack to the installation type and press
Upgrade it again does not find any partitions...  To the shell reveals that
/tmp/hda is not there again.
