Description Don Himelrick 2001-06-15 01:14:01 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
FIC va503+ mb with Promise u66 pci ide and 2 40G IBM u100 drives.
I have both onboard ide controllers enabled, a cdrom on the primary.   The 
only hard disks are the 2 on the promise u66 (hde and hdg).  The drives 
are recognized correctly, but the only way I can install is to bypass 
asssigning mount points by chosing an automatic partition.  Otherwise, the 
graphical installer will not enable the "next" button and allow me to 
continue with the installation after disk partitioning.  

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Chose fdisk or disk druid during install

Actual Results:  The next button remains grayed out, disallowing 
completion of the install.

Expected Results:  Should be able to cocntinue install

Did you create a "/" and a swap partition?

Comment 2 Don Himelrick 2001-06-16 03:10:27 UTC
Aaahhemmm,  errrrrrrrrrrrr, uh,  I guess not.  I've installed quite a few 
redhats since version 4, and I'd swear I had all of the required partitions, 
but I was messing around with the raid stuff quite a bit, so I must have 
botched it somehow.  I was on to the / partition but the swap partintion might 
have escaped me.  In any event, it seems to be working tonight the way I 
thought I tried it last night.  

Thank you, VERY, VERY much!
