Description Dusty Jones 2000-02-14 21:57:02 UTC
When doing a hard drive install from a dos win32 partition (file type 0x0B)
mounting the partion, in this case /dev/hda1 as /mnt/win32_system, causes
the installer program to abort abnormally with the error 'File Not Found'
at the install RPM stage.

Repeating the install and mounting only the linux partion, in this case
hdb1 and hdb2 results in a successfull install.

Also, mounting the other /dev/hda partions did not effect the install, i.e.
/dev/hda3 , /dev/hda5 , /dev/hda6 had no effect the install.

As long as the partion with the RPMS is not mounted, with disk druid,
everything is ok.
