Installing Redhat 7.0 from CD to a Maxtor 80G IDE drive. Maxtor's EZ Bios 
is installed.

Any custom install fails with a 'cannot mount - argument error' dialogue
box, and then presents the following trace:

--------------------------------

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 438, in ?
    intf.run(todo, test = test)
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 1030, in 
run
    rc = apply (step[1](), step[2])
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 507, in 
__call__
    if todo.doInstall ():
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1472, in 
doInstall
    self.fstab.mountFilesystems (self.instPath)
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/fstab.py", line 713, in

    raise SystemError, (errno, msg)

--------------------------------

A server install works without a problem, but I wish to install everything,
and use a custom partitioning arrangement.
