Description Gerben Roest 1999-10-03 08:21:20 EDT
In the graphical install shell, I wanted to perform an
update of 6.0 to 6.1. While "checking for previous Red Hat
installations", setup tried to check or mount my
/dev/sdb6, which is an NTFS partition, and it said:

error mounting ext2 partition: invalid option.

After that, it hung. It did so even in expert mode.
