Comment 2 Marcin Krzywdzinski 2002-11-13 08:40:09 UTC
I solved the problem. My fstab file consisted of a comment at the end of the 
line. 'fstab' file is read using a format mask "%-23s %-23s %-7s %-15s %d %
d\n", so any chars at the end of the line caused that the line did not match a 
format and was not read. That why the root partition was not seen.
File fsset.py
def fstab (self):
        format = "%-23s %-23s %-7s %-15s %d %d\n"
