Unhappy partition mounting problem

i made following partitions by using Mandrake 9.0

/ (root) - 2GB
SWAP - 630Mb
/BOOT - 200MB
/home - 5GB

I formatted swap and boot partitions and Clicked on MOUNT. It went thru' well.

When i tried ROOt mount, it came out with an error - mounting partition /dev/hda8 in directory failed (no such file or directory)

When i tried to Format Root it said i have to reboot the system.

After rebooting, now my Mandrake installation process stops just before showing Partition screen.

Can any1 plz. help me.

if these are your only partitions, I recommend re-installing mandrake and deleting/reformatting all your partitions. You can also force these to all be primary partitions (hda1 thru hda4) instead of having hda4 as an extended partition and hda5 being your /home

when you format (from installer) check for bad blocks.
