Description of problem:
Every time I try to do a partitionless install I get this bug.  I save the 
file and get a report called 'anacdump'.  The begining of it looks like 
Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 520, in ?
    intf.run(todo, test = test)
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 1126, in run
    rc = apply (step[1](), args)
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-
7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/textw/partitioning_text.py", line 228, in __call__
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/fstab.py", line 505, in 
    isys.ddfile(file, size, (self.progressWindow,
File "/mnt/redhat/test/qa0408.4/i386/RedHat/instimage/usr/lib/anaconda/isys
.py", line 90, in ddfile
    fd = os.open(file, os.O_RDWR | os.O_CREAT)
OSError: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: '/mnt/loophost/rh-swap.img'

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run Install in text mode
2.Do a partitionless install

Basically, I just set up as the directions told me to

Actual Results:  Exception Occcured

Expected Results:  Installation of Red Hat Linux

Additional info:

file: /mnt/loophost/rh-swap.img
pw: (<method InstallInterface.progressWindow of InstallInterface instance 
at 82246a8>, 'Swap Space', 'Creating swap space...')
fd: 9
megs: 32

This is placed after a bunch of binary stuff in the file, it is also 
followed by some other lines, but I did not include them

Did the FAT partition that you installed to already exist or did you make it
with Disk Druid?
