Could you be a bit more specific, as in what actually happens when it crashes? Do you see any errors or does it just reboot?
Something you may try is to just install the minimal system (it shouldn't ask for the 4th disk). This will tell you that there's probably something wrong with your 4th disk, plus you have the system up and running, then you need only install the rest of what you want using the urpmi.
Hope this helps,
