Description of problem:
JFS install crashes w/ Anaconda. Traceback:

"...RuntimeError: /sbin/jfs_tune can not be run..."

The correct path to jfs_tune in the ram disk image is /usr/sbin/jfs_tune.
Kickstart provides a workaround and test of the correct path with

#before the chroot jail is applied set a sym. link
ln -s /usr/sbin/jfs_tune /sbin/jfs_tune

which clears the RuntimeError. Though w/o kickstart you are stuck.
(chroot jail applied so no way out from an interactive install)

I was booting off a boot.iso pulled the from Jan 05 '04 FC development
tree ( which reports out as FC 1.9 test )

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot w/ linux jfs and attempt to install jfs formated partitions via
Anaconda installer.
