Description Red Hat Bugzilla 2000-06-11 22:29:11 EDT
On this test machine, the partition scheme is:

/dev/hda1	->	win98
/dev/hda2	->	win2k
/dev/hda3	->	Be 5
/dev/hda5	->	Linux /
/dev/hda6	->	Linux swap
/dev/hda7	->	Linux /usr

I told it to mount /dev/hda1 as /win98, /dev/hda5 as /, and /dev/hda7 as
/usr.  I also told it to format hda5 and hda7.  It popped up the status box
"formatting /" (as it should have), and then when that finished, a status
box "formatting /win98" (which is definitely wrong).  Fortunately, only the
labelling in anaconda is incorrect (it said it was formatting /win98, but
it actually formatted /usr, like it should have)....

Please reproduce in the test lab.
Comment 2 Red Hat Bugzilla 2000-06-26 00:04:00 EDT
Beta 2 doesn't have this problem.  If you can't reproduce it, I think you can
close it.
Comment 3 Red Hat Bugzilla 2000-06-26 13:47:11 EDT
unable to reproduce in test ... thanks for your report, and glad to hear that it
is resolved in beta2!
