	When doing an install on sparc (yes above isn't a sparc)  the pleasemountroot message suggests mount /dev/b / as the way to fix the problem, this is due to the message wanting 4 %s's filled in, however we only pass 3 strings in.  However I note that the foreign langauge versions only have 3 %s's.
	do an install on sparc using a minifs inside the swap partion, so that where root is mounted from is not obvious
	Fix the message to use 3 %s's, or add an extra diskdev to the calls that display it and update the foriegn messages.

(Note I'm happy to fix, but not sure of the right way around for it.)
