Dual Boot FC2 / Ubuntu - interesting results


I am getting some interesting peculiar results while trying install ubuntu along side FC2 on my box. Each time I install Ubuntu (5.04) everything seems to work fine and I am able to boot into Ubuntu no problem. However if I try to boot into FC2 things go a little wacky. I get Errors during boot up, ie.

Quote:
Checking for new hardware [ok]

Updating fstab : cannot update read-only file system [failed]
then it goes through a couple more lines says:

Quote:
touch: cannot touch: read-only filesystem
then it hangs at:

Quote:
Setting up system Logger:

anybody encounter anything like this?

any ideas and/or help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

ok,

i did some more investigating and I'm pretty sure it's because i have both the ubuntu partition and the fc2 partition labeled "/"

so my question now is can I label the ubuntu partition whatever i want and will it still work?

thanks,

well the most trivial way is to reformat the ubuntu partition and making sure that you removed the partition label. that worked for me =)
