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:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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).
Please give more information about the hardware in your system. We've not
