Description Kurt Ludwig 2000-07-19 14:29:59 UTC
running on a UP1000 w/ v5.7 SRM
Adaptec 2940UW and a 9.1GB Seagate UW

(have tried this both auto-layout on the drive and manual layout w/ a swap 
partition and a root partition and get the same error both ways)

prior to this install, there is already a bootstrap block on the HDD from 
aboot 0.7 from a previous install.

if you reboot the machine and let it check it's filesystem(s), it comes up 
w/ RH7

are you still seeing this behavior with later beta versions of the release ...? 
we are not seeing this behavior using newer internal trees & beta 4 on similar
hardware in our test lab ...

Fixed in latest RC.
