Description of problem:
I tried to install several times using the custom install and it always
failed at the end saying to save the error to disk and send to bugzilla. I
have it on a floppy.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Attempt to install using custom settings and hda1 is a windows partition.
2.Use a single root partition of 9gb and a swap of 1 gb
3.All atempts like above failed.
Actual Results: Failed to install.
Expected Results: Successful install
Traceback (innermost last):
File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line
19, in run
rc = self.todo.doInstall ()

OSError: [Errno 17] File exists: '/mnt/sysimage/dev/hda1'
Local variables in innermost frame:

At which screen does it fail? Right before installing packages?
After reaching 100% after installing packages the messge above is given.
Did you set a mount point for your Windows partition?
Yes. Mount point for Windows(DOS) partition was /dev/hda1.
no, that's where the device is located. You selected the device in Disk Druid
and then assigned its mount point to be /dev/hda1. /dev/hda1 is a device node,
not a directory. You should mount it under /dosc or something like that.
this unhandled exception will be handled in the next release.
