Description gbb 1999-05-01 14:45:04 UTC
in the setup program , at thepoint after fdisking , when you
are choosing the mount points for your linux system , i
found i was unable to choose some names simply because they
started with a recognised system dir

/binwibblewibble   etc.

Currently don't have  time to look at it myself to suggest a
fix. Sorry!

Yes, you can't make a /binwibblewibble mount point :-)

Any mount point that begins with /bin /dev /usr /etc etc. will not
work. This procludes you from making /development /etcetera /usrfoo
etc. Mount points that begin with /boot, ie /bootfoo, work.

This issue is resolved in the 6.1 installer.
