From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.61 [en] (X11; I; Linux 2.2.9-27mdk i586)

Description of problem:
Please excuse the lack of technical details I'm new to linux.  While doing
the install on a Dell latitude 400Mhz PII laptop, the default install runs
to the very end with no problems then (with no errors) hangs at the last
program.  I rebooted and used the text  option for install.  It performed
very similar allowing me to select all the options i wanted but just BEFORE
installing software it crashes prompting me to save the following info to
disk and submitting here...

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 438, in ?
    intf.run(todo, test = test)
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 1030, in
    rc = apply (step[1](), step[2])
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/text.py", line 507, in
    if todo.doInstall ():
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/todo.py", line 1472, in

  File "fstab.py", line 715, in mountFilesystems
    raise SystemError, (errno, msg)
