Installer dumped this file
Did you choose to format all partitions? It seems like the /home directory was
present already on your root partition.
Yes I choose to format all the partitions.
They were already present because I had RH 6.1 before.
I thought it was best to do a complete install rather than to upgrade from 6.1
What partitions and mount points are you using for the install?
I solved the problem. It was my harddrives fault, something was wrong with it,
that's why it never remembered such things as mount points.
The harddrive probably gave the installer wrong information at one point or another.
Thanks for all the help!
(I used /, /usr, /boot and /home. The partitions was somewhat strange, it looked
like an extended DOS partition. I removed all partitions using FDISK under
ms-dos and re-created them during the RH Linux installation while no other
partitions existed. It worked.)
glad to hear you got it all sorted out ... thanks for your report!
