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.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot from install CD-Rom
2. Go through language/keyboard/mouse/install options and choose Upgrade
3. After the 
"Customize packages to be upgraded" screen click "Next". (Doesn't matter 
wheter checked or not).

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

Additional info:

My swap partition is 2 GBytes.

Can you attach the /etc/fstab file from your 7.1 system?
