Description of Problem: Prior to installing and upgrade from 7.0 to 7.1 on
SCSI based HP system, I made a mirror backup of /dev/sda onto /dev/sdc. 
Upgrade 'spotted' that /dev/sdc contained a bootable 
drive with O/S on it, asked (with radio buttons) which drive I wanted to
upgrade.  I chose /dev/sda and when upgrade was finished, all programs
(installed rpms) on /dev/sda were upgraded...BUT...the new 
kernel was placed on /dev/sdc anyway (but not /dev/sda) and its MBR (but
not /dev/sda) was updated.  This effectively left both /dev/sda and
/dev/sdc unbootable!  /dev/sda had new O/S but old kernel and MBR; /dev/sdc
had old O/S but new kernel and MBR...

This is just a report of bug to try and be helpful, I am not requesting any
assistance on this.

Thanks for the report.
I'm assigning it to the installer component.
Comment 2 Matt Wilson 2001-08-24 18:20:27 EDT
this is because the installer uses 'mount by label' to mount your filesystems. 
The last found label wins, so the "/" label on the sdc drive gets mounted.

Deferred to future release.
Comment 4 Red Hat Bugzilla 2006-02-21 13:48:00 EST
Changed to 'CLOSED' state since 'RESOLVED' has been deprecated.
