Description of problem:
Toggling to <ctrl><f3> and it indicates that it failed to mount
/tmp/sda1 to some boot image location.

Toggling to <ctrl><f2> and it indicates that e2fsck needs to run.

Upon further inspection there is some problem with the root inode.  Also it 
says that sda1 is not a directory.

(ls -al /tmp/sda1  indicates:

brw.....   /tmp/sda1

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run RH9 installer
2.Use default installer settings (eg. autopartition, net, etc.)
3.Tell autopartition disk druid to blow away ALL existing partitions.


Actual Results:  While watching the installer format the partitions, I verified 
that it does indicate that /boot has been indeed formatted.  But the errro 
comes up and forces a reboot of the system.  The error also mentions ("This 
usually indicates that the partition has not been formatted).
