Description Jonathan Kamens 1999-11-05 13:22:33 UTC
I installed RedHat 6.1 onto a PC with an existing NT
installation.  The installer allowed me to specify a mount
point for my NTFS partition, and it put the mount point in
/etc/fstab, but when the machine rebooted after the install,
it couldn't mount the partition because the kernel didn't
support ntfs.

Either the installer should install ntfs support if it is
needed, or it shouldn't allow the user to specify where a
NTFS partition should be mounted after the install.

This issue has been assigned to a developer for further action.

This is not part of your 30 days web support.  You need to file a support ticket
