you were right: the Fedora cd told me:
invalid partition table - recursive partition on /tmp/hda
which is clearly more informative than the Ubuntu absence of message!
Anyway, I was unable to find what does that mean, and hovw it
I tried to re-partion with PartitionMagic, but it crashed,
and I was left with a broken disk. So, i did a fresh install.
