I have seen this also on the mailing list, but with no
answer: the hard disk upgrade hangs when rebuilding the rpm
database; it says something about not being able to create a
symlink to a partition that had already been mounted.

If it matters, the files were on /usr/local/redhat, with
/usr under a separate partition, and I tried to give both
local/redhat and /local/redhat as paths. I tried with /var
as a separate partition and as part of /

If you are interested, I can retest and give you all the

BTW The installer *really* doesn't like finding an
unformatted ext2 partition: I admit it's not common to add a
partition while upgrading the OS, but I never felt like
breaking the uptime record just for adding some space...
