Description Chris Kloiber 1999-10-04 17:24:00 UTC
I have a dual-boot system (win98), 2 IDE CD's (one is R/W) and an
ATAPI  Zip drive. While installing 6.1, I tried setting a mount point of
/c for my windows partition (in 6.0, the mount point would be created,
but no fstab entry would be made) In 6.1 the reverse occurs. A correct
fstab entry is created, but no mountpoint is made.  For the cdrom's, both
are detected and correct fstab entries are created, but the second
cdrom's mount point is again not created. I really did not expect an
automatic entry for the zip drive, but it would be nice.

I selected during install to have my Windows partition
mounted under /dos.  It made the fstab entry, but it didn't
create the /dos directory.
