Description George France 2002-02-08 11:10:31 EST
Description of Problem:

Can do an upgrade unless there is a /boot partition.  If you just had a swap 
and root partition, then the installation fails.

How Reproducible:

Select 'Upgrade' in annaconda on a hard drive with out a /boot partition.

Comment 1 Alexandre Petit-Bianco 2002-02-20 15:33:01 EST
This was most likely a side effect of 58717. An update senario where no /boot 
partition was present ran with no problem.

Comment 2 Jay Turner 2002-03-07 12:09:21 EST
Was able to perform upgrade without any problems.
