Description Lisa Rojas 2001-06-01 17:01:41 UTC
Description of Problem:
When installing a new server with 7.1, I found a nasty little bug.  I accidentally put 16 partitions on a scsi drive.
neither fdisk OR diskdruid caught the error. The installation went fine until it came time to format the new filesystems. 
then it just hung.  Out of curiosity I used a boot diskette to see what happened and it appeared that with the exception of /,
none of the extended partitions got mounted.  They did have entries in fstab, just not in mtab.  At the very least, disk druid 
ought to error out when you try to give a mount point to sda#'s that are over the scsi limitation.

How Reproducible: ALWAYS

Steps to Reproduce:
1. see problem desciption

Actual Results: see problem description

Expected Results:

Additional Information:
	Hardware FYI - Dell poweredge 2400; 5 16G drives; 3 containers (2 at raid1 and 1 at raid0) adaptec 7x card.
