Description of problem:
I am installing to an IBM laptop A20m. I successfully installed this 
software before on this laptop with another harddisk using the Graphical 
install as a workstation. This time I was using the custom install 
following the instructions in the book: "Red Hat Linux 7 Weekend Crash 
course". Everything went fine up to completing the video selection and it 
was time to begin the installation and it gave me an error trying to mount 
hda2 with the attached logfile. 

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use Druid to create partitions Root and Swap on 2Gig partition
2.Complete all selection criteria
3.Begin installation

Actual Results:  error message mounting hda2

Expected Results:  Installation should have proceeded normally

Additional info:

Here's the error message I saved!

Traceback (innermost last):
