text install mode (doesn't matter)

3. Witness Anaconda error and the prompt to save the core dump to a

The core dump I saved to the floppy when prompted
Here's the output of the core dump.
Can you attach your fc2 /etc/fstab - we don't seem to have a / entry
in our fs list.

the /etc/fstab in question
<Can you attach your fc2 /etc/fstab - we don't seem to have a / entry

Yes, I noticed a curiosity in fstab yesterday. Somehow, cLABEL keeps
sneaking in there when it should be LABEL. I've seen this before and
don't know what is doing this. Perhaps changing this back to LABEL
will work. (Above is attachment of fstab). Thanks.
Yes changing back to LABEL should make it work. Can you edit, confirm
correct with head /etc/fstab then retry the upgrade?
I've also commited a fix to HEAD to not trace back and give an error
message in the case of no / in fstab
Yes, changing it back to LABEL worked and I upgraded to FC3. Thank
you very much.
