Mount Failed: Invalid Argument
 
Hi! I'm trying to install Red Hat 6 on a machine. I have NT Server on this machine and will duel boot it. After I've set my partitions and have chosen the packages, the installation begins but I then get the above error (Mount Failed: Invalid Argument) and I can't get past it. Any advice? I've found very little info online. The CD drive works because I was able to install NT on the machine, so that can't be it. Thanks!

what command is being used to mount it, or if that is the error at bootup, what is the line that is in your /etc/fstab file.

oh and just out of curiousity, can i ask why you are installing such an old version of RH.

oh nm, you know what, i just realized you are saying you are getting this error during your installation, and i am sorry to say i have no answer for you..so disregard the questions i asked you.

It's the most current version that I have right now! My goal is simply to learn my way around it and to learn the commands and stuff. I have an interview for a job and I have to brush up on it and hands on would help. As far as commands, I'm using Disk Druid to help with the partitions. Besides the NT partition, I put 3 partitions: /boot (15 for size), Swap (50 for size), and / (2 GB). I have a small HD and only 16 Megs of memory on that machine. Again, I just want to learn the basics (commands and stuff).
