Fails to mount root partition while installing

Comment 1 Brent Fox 2001-03-29 21:00:49 UTC
Do you see a Python traceback error?  If so, attaching the error message would
help us to identify the problem.

Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2001-03-29 21:17:55 UTC
It looks like you didn't choose to format the '/' partition - this is required
for the install to work.
