Should be fixed in newer code.

What are you upgrading from, and what sort of partition layout are you starting
out with? I'd be interested to see if this is still happening with fc4test2.
At the time I originally reported the bug I was using a dual boot system with
RH8 booted from a floppy boot disk. The partition arrangement was as follows
Disk0 sda1 was Win98 "C" fat16
sda2 was win "E" fat16
sda3 was win "F" fat16
Disk1 hda1 was win "D" fat32
hda2 was win "G" fat32
hda3 was win "H" fat32
hda4 was win "I" fat32
hda5 was win "J" fat32
hda6 was RH8 ext3
hda7 was linux swap
As I could not get either the FC2 or FC3 magazine disks to upgrade my RH8
installation I have now fitted a third hard drive which alowed me to install as
hdb1 WinXP ntfs
hdb2 FC3 ext3 Clean Install
hdb3 /home ext3
hdb4/5 linux swap
I boot this lot from a GRUB boot floppy.
I havn't been able to download FC4-test as my broadband link is via a radio and
satellite link and usually drops out before I get to the end! I will wait till
FC4 apopears on a magazine disk before trying it as I don't want to fry my RH8 OS.
Can you post your hda6's /etc/fstab?
For what it's worth, I don't believe you will get this exception anymore on FC4
because it looks like we're handling the case where root is None. That doesn't
mean this will work - you'll just get an error dialog explaining the situation
instead of an exception. It's a friendlier error, but still an error.
