Description Dave Malcolm 2006-12-13 16:32:47 EST
Description of problem:
Attempting to boot using the Copy to RAM option.

output is (after a few minutes):

Done copying livecd to RAM
unable to open /etc/mtab: No such file or directory
Bug in initramfs /init detected.  Dropping to a shell.  Good luck!

Digging around in the shell, I have a /etc/fstab, but not a /etc/mtab

This works fine for me with the current Fedora 7 images
