Description of problem:
In the 'Boot Loader Configuration' screen,
anaconda proposes to install the boot loader on /dev/md0
(if you have software RAID). What if my /boot is on /dev/md1?
(Pardon my ignorance if this is prohibited by software RAID)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Go to the Boot Loader Configuration screen
Are you talking about in the listbox which lists OS choices (and associates
/dev/md0 with Red Hat Linux)?
Actually no (sorry about the late answer, it's just that I'm getting around
to installing stuff again now). In the screen "Boot loader configuration"
You can see
"The GRUB loader will be installed on /dev/md0"
You can set this to be LILO but you cannot set this to be /dev/md1 for example.
As I said, this *might* not make sense.
The displayed device is the one that makes sense. You can also use the advanced
boot loader screen to change things a little more.
