Description of problem:
When using 'linux rescue', system will search for all linux partitions. It then prompts the user for the root system that should be
mounted in /mnt/sysimage.
Whatever the choice, the first one is always mounted in /mnt/sysimage
I have two disks, one with root at /dev/hda7, another one (the one I tried to fix) in /dev/hdb2. System detects the two, asks me
which one I want to use, I select hdb2, and find out that /dev/hda7 is mounted in /mnt/sysimage. Tried several times, always got the
same result. I can mount hdb2 in any other mount point though
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Have several root partitions on different disks
2. Linux rescue disk
3. Select anything but the first 'root'
Actual Results: The first root is always mounted, whatever the choice in #3
Expected Results: The selected partition should be mounted in /mnt/sysimage
Works for me with Red Hat Linux 8.0.
