Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2002-03-21 12:12:09 EST
There is a bug in the code to report an error condition. It appears you may
have been mounting a filesystem that was unformatted. What steps in partitioning
did you take?

Comment 3 Robert H. Powell IV 2002-03-23 15:17:34 EST
I have two hardrives on the computer now.  When installing RedHat 7.2, I let 
the installation program remove all partions and automatically create new 
partitions and format the drive.  When it did the automatice partioning, it 
only used the first hard drive (hda) and left hdb unpartitioned and free.  The 
istallation program created a /boot, /, and /swap mounts on hda.  I left hdb 
unpartioned and free (completely empty).  I did mark "check for bad blocks" for 
each of the hda partitions listed above, and the installation program formatted 
the partitions.  Please let me know if I can provide additional information.  I 
don't know if it matters, but I am installing from a bootable CD-ROM drive, and 
I have a secondary CD-ROM Rewriteable drive on the computer as well.

Is this reproducible?

When the error occurs, could you look at VC5 (cntl-alt-f5) and see if there are
any error messages please.
