Description vaniwaar 1999-10-31 19:55:06 UTC
I installed RH 6.0 and now looked forward to doing my first
upgrade of RH to 6.1.  It failed, claiming that it could not
find linux at /dev/hda1 which is my OS/2 partition.  Here is
my current partition form fdisk:
/dev/hda1             4       572    286776    7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda2           614      9924   4692744    5  Extended
/dev/hda3   *         1         3      1480+   a  OS/2 Boot
/dev/hda4           573       613     20664   83  Linux
/dev/hda5   *       614      3661   1536160+   7  HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda6   *      9664      9924    131512+  82  Linux swap
/dev/hda7          3662      6709   1536160+  83  Linux
/dev/hda8          6710      9215   1262992+  83  Linux

What must I do to continue installing?

This is a duplicate of bug #5555.  You need to download the updated
boot images and updates disk in order to be able to upgrade a system
with either NTFS or HPFS partitions.  Please see bug #5555 for more
information about this bug.  I am closing this bug to prevent further
clutter with bug #5555.
