Description of problem:
I tried to upgrade rh8 to rh9. previously i have added to the rh8 fstab an
entry for a usb pendrive, /dev/sda1.
during the upgrade anaconda told me that it couldn't mount /dev/sda1 and quit.
I'd like an option to continue the setup, even if it impossible to mount a
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. add an entry to fstab for /dev/sda1
2. make sure there is no /dev/sda1 device connected
3. reboot and upgrade to rh9
Please attach your /etc/fstab.
At worst you can just comment out the line during the upgrade.
unfortunately I've reformatted and reinstalled rh9 from scratch,
since I wasn't able to upgrade...
In any case just find the code in anaconda that opens the dialog
saying that it will reboot, and change it, to let the user continue
If there is a problem mounting filesystems then the user needs to resolve the
issue before an upgrade can continue. It was decided it is best to not let
users proceed at this point.
but what if the filesystem is on a removable drive and the drive is unavailable
at the time of the upgrade?
