in recent redhat versions the fstab file looks
something like this
LABEL=/ / ext3 defaults
LABEL=/boot /boot ext3 defaults
none /dev/pts devpts gid=5,mode=620
LABEL=/home /home ext3 defaults
i think mkbootdisk is not comfortable with *LABEL=/* entry
try changing it to
/dev/hdXX / fstype defaults 1 1

I tried to make a boot disk with "mkbootdisk". This gave an error saying
"root partition not listed in /etc/fstab"..i checked up fstab, it had the
entry for / as well as /usr, /boot, /swap and /home. Why then is this error
Actually, I has problems booting into linux (RH 7.0)(thro boot disk) after
installing, which i solved by typing "linux root=/dev/hda6" at boot prompt.
Now, lilo is installed in the boot sector of the first HD (Win2000). It is
booting and working properly and all, except i get this error while trying to
make a boot floppy. HELP!!!
