I decided to make 3 partitions for / (3000M), /usr (3000M) and swap (128M). The installer crashes at the end of formating the /usr partition and 
sends an failure message:

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line 20, in run
    rc = self.todo.doInstall ()
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1480, in doInstall
    if self.method.systemMounted (self.fstab, self.instPath, self.hdList.selected()):
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/image.py", line 46, in systemMounted
    self.loopbackFile = mntPoint + fstab.filesystemSpace(mntPoint)[0][0] + \
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/fstab.py", line 258, in filesystemSpace
    space.append((mntpoint, isys.fsSpaceAvailable(topMount + '/' + mntpoint)))
  File "/usr/lib/anaconda/isys.py", line 16, in fsSpaceAvailable
    return _isys.devSpaceFree(fsystem)
SystemError: (2, 'No such file or directory')

Local variables in innermost frame:
fsystem: /mnt/sysimage//mnt/win_c

ToDo object:


Sorry, I'm a redhat beginner. Therefore I have no clue what the message is all about....

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from Redhat CD.
2. Go through the whole installation menus and start the installation process....
3. .. and wait at about half an hour. Then save the bug message to a disk (as requested by the system) and thats it.

Actual Results:  Nothing.

Expected Results:  Redhat installed and running.

I installed from a CD given by a magazine called 'Linux intern' (german). It said, that the Redhat version on the disk would be the same you can 
download from Redhat.
