Description of problem:
I'm trying to upgrade my Dell 530 dual processor from Red Hat Linux 7.1 to
Red Hat Linux 7.2. I boot from cd-ROM, go through the
language/keyboard/mouse/install options and choose Upgrade. After the
"Customize packages to be upgraded" screen I click "Next". Then a pop-up
window appears that there's no swap device and that it needs to reboot.
This scenario is followed whether I boot expert or not.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from install CD-Rom

Actual Results: A pop-up window appears that there's no swap device and
that it needs to reboot.
Expected Results: Upgrade should have started
My swap partition is 2 GBytes.
