Description Allen Kistler 2007-03-18 10:15:58 UTC
Description of problem:
During installation, the installer migrates existing /boot from ext2 to ext3. 
f7 / is a separate partition from existing / and is formatted new.  /boot is
migrated successfully to ext3.  /etc/fstab entries are set up successfully
(i.e., separate entry for /boot).  However,, config, grub directory,
initrd, and vmlinuz are installed into /boot directory on / partition, not into
/boot partition.

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

How reproducible:
I only tried once, but I expect I could do it always.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start with existing ext2 older installation
2. In installer, migrate /boot partition from ext2 to ext3
3. In installer, format fresh / partition for f7-test2

Actual results:
f7 /boot files are in /boot directory on / partition

Expected results:
f7 /boot files should be in /boot partition

Additional info:
hda1 /boot (common to fc5 and f7)
hda2 /     (fc5)
hda3 swap  (common to fc5 and f7)
hda4 /     (f7)

Conjecture: The migration of the /boot partition from ext2 to ext3 appears to
result in the /boot partition not being mounted during installation.

Tested this in rawhide today and it appears to be working correctly now.
