Description of problem:
I have two hard disks. hda contains FC1 and hdb contains windows. Now
when I try to upgrade to FC2, right after I have chosen to upgrade my
FC1 installation I get that there is an error. The popup says " Error
enabling swap devbie hdb8 No souch device or adress. This most likeli
means this swap partition has not  been initialized" Yeh I get the
oiption to reboot. 
The partiont table is below. Do note that there is no /dev/hdb8...

Comment 4 Pontus Enhager 2004-05-20 16:02:39 EDT
that pretty much tells the problem - no ide when that snuck in -
removing and retrying
Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2004-05-20 16:48:27 EDT
Yep, anaconda requires your fstab to be accurate for an upgrade to
succeed.
