Description Sebastien Haneuse 2001-03-28 08:23:34 UTC
Hello

I have been trying to install Red Hat Linux 7.0. I get through the majority of the installation (Workstation installation). When I try to begin 
formatting my partitions I get an error, which was saved into a file on a floppy disk. Here are the contents of the file.

Thanks

Sebastien Haneuse

Make sure you chose to format the '/' partition.
