Description of problem:
It seems that kickstart won't install swap on a RAID1 metadevice.
The installer says something like "need two devices for mirror" and then reboots.
I got this error message with 8.0 too but it continued with the install.
A fault tolerant system should have swap on a mirror.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install swap on a RAID1 device during KS
Actual Results: reboots
Expected Results: Works.

Kickstart configuration used
Sensitive information has been removed fron ks.cfg.
You need to specify a mount point of 'swap', ie:
raid --level=1 --device=md0 --fstype swap raid.01 raid.02
raid swap --level=1 --device=md0 --fstype swap raid.01 raid.02
I'll add some sanity checking for the mount point when we parse the ks.cfg.
Sorry to comment on a closed bug. Thanks for the fix! However, the ks.cfg file
came directly from redhat-config-kickstart. So, maybe that has a bug?
