Description James Laska 2010-02-15 19:32:55 UTC
Description of problem:

 * Boot anaconda rescue mode and attempt to mount a previously installed default partitioned installation

 * anaconda-13.26

How reproducible:
 * So far ... 4 out of 4 attempts 

Steps to Reproduce:

2. When prompted, enable networking (the answer here doesn't change the result)
Actual results:
