Comment 2 Thomas Amsler 2000-09-27 00:43:59 UTC
This bug only happens when I try to add an existing Win-Fat32 partion to fstab
during the install procedure. I tried the install now without adding the mount
point for the win partion and it worked fine.

Please verify brock.

Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2000-09-29 15:40:08 UTC
Was this an install where you were installing Red Hat Linux to a FAT partition?

I installed in in a ext2 partition.

I had the same problem.  I have a 486 laptop and am doing an NFS custom install
from a mounted RH 7.0 CD #2.  The laptop had (and still has until formated) a
FAT16 parition on it, but the install is being done completely over the
network.  I'm at a complete stand still till this is fixed.  Any more info I can
provide, please let me know.

Comment 11 John Bollinger 2000-10-02 20:47:31 UTC
I encountered this bug (or one indistinguishably similar to it).  The system had
one FAT32 partition [Win98] as /dev/hda1, which I assigned a mount point at
installation time.  Linux was installed to several other partitions [ext2] -- 
/dev/hda1 was involved in the installation only in that I set up a mount point
for it.  I used a custom installation [via CD] and opted to select individual
packages.  The installer then crashed after formatting the relevant filesystems
but before displaying the "transferring installation image [...]" progress bar.  I
was able to perform a successful installation by EITHER not setting up a
mount point for /dev/hda1 OR by not opting to select individual packages.
I didn't try both together, but I assume that would work too.
