The installation of Redhat Linux 7.0 failed with the following 

Traceback (innermost last):

    self.fstab.mountFilesystems (self.instPath)
  File "fstab.py", line 715, in mountFilesystems
    raise SystemError, (errno, msg)
SystemError: (22, 'Invalid argument')

The installation was attemted directly from CD, with the Workstation 
option, partitioning done with fdisk. After assigning mountpoints and 
initialising format an error stated that the swap partitions could not be 
created and the installer exited with the above message.
