Description Ed McKenzie 2001-07-14 18:07:20 EDT
The nomount option to 'linux rescue' should be documented on the help
screens for the bootable CD.  Nomount is the only way to rescue some systems:

- anaconda crashes if fstab isn't consistent with partitions.  I'd report a
traceback, but it reboots right away.
- rescue mounts all fses read-write, which is bad.

We are planning on prompting the user before attempting to mount the existing
installation in our next release.
