Description of problem:
When upgrading from RH9, the FC2 installer fails and reports that it
cannot mount /home on /dev/sda15: File or directory not found.
The problem lies in that /dev/sda15 is not defined so anaconda cannot
use it to mount the home directory.
My temporary workaround was to comment out the partition relating to
/dev/sda15 from /etc/fstab, then do the upgrade and finally restore
/etc/fstab. That worked well for /home but this obviously would not
be possible if something more useful was on /dev/sda15.
I have replicated this bug in FC1 too and as I can't find a bug report
I figure I must be the only crazy idiot with 15 partitions on a disc! :-)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have RH9 system with 15 partitions on /dev/sda
2. Run FC1 installer and choose upgrade
The kernel doesn't allow having more than 14 partitions on a SCSI disk
due to the allocated minors for each disk.
