Description Behnam [:ZWNJ] Esfahbod 2005-01-09 10:14:43 EST
Description of problem:
Anaconda cannot accept a hard disk with a file system as a mount point
like root or home.

How reproducible:
Make a file system on a hard disk without a partition table.  Then try

Expected results:
It should accept my hard disk's file system (ie, on /dev/hdb) as mount
point (ie, /home).
