How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install system
2.fails when it gets ready to format the swap space

Actual Results:  get a bug report requester and installation stops

Expected Results:  system installed

Additional info:

seems to be failing on the intall of the swapspace, not sure if it is 
formating that properly or failing to mount, comp is a SONY vaio PCV-
R528DS 128MB Ram, New Maxtor 30GB IDE hard drive, not installed or 
formated with the software that was installed. Installed 20Gb partition 
and win 2000 pro, then attempted to install remaining 9.5GB as linux 
partition and small swap partition
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-05-16 04:28:02 EDT
This doesn't have anything to do with the mount package. Please try to choose 
the correct component when reporting a bug. It gives you a faster response and 
saves us some work.

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2001-05-16 16:24:31 EDT
How big were the partitions that you made?
Comment 3 steve lanz 2001-05-20 10:54:18 EDT
the primary nt partition was 20 gig, the native linux was 9gig, and i tried 100mb, 16mb, 32 mb, 64mb and received the same message each time.
