Description Need Real Name 2000-10-04 08:48:37 EDT
Attempting to install Red Hat 7.0 on Dell Latitude laptop with 16GB Fujitsu
hard drive.
Fails with the following message (may not be letter-perfect; had to
transcribe manually):

Traceback (innermost last):
 File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py",line
20, in run
  rc = selftodo.doInstall ()
 File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1470, in
doInstall
  self.fstab.turnOnSwap()
 File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/fstab.py", line 406, in
turnOnSwap
  isys.swapon (file)
 File "/usr/lib/anaconda/isys.py", line 142, in swapon
  return_isys.swapon (path)
SystemError: (22, 'Invalid argument')

Please advise.  Similar error occurs with Red Hat 6.2.  Win 2K installs
normally.
