Description Marian-Nicolae ION 2001-11-30 08:59:30 EST
Trying to create a bootdisk displayed the following message:

Cannot find root partition in /etc/fstab

I think the problem comes from the fact that at the line 119 in the
/sbin/mkbootdisk script the previously found value for rootdev is
changed to the empty string.

Simply moving the lines 132-135 *before* line 110 has solved the

I have not looked at the mkbootdisk code, but changing my /etc/fstab from using
LABEL to the actual device name seems to have made mkbootdisk happy.  I presume
not supporting LABEL is a bug.

It works with LABEL= here.
