when doing a custome partition setup on a fresh install, sysinst
says "be sure to set up mount points" or something like that, but
it doesn't actually check to see that it's been done and either
issue a warning ("continue anyway?") screen, or reject the
this results in the installation failing mysteriously, later
while downloading and/or installing sets. (runs out of space.)
I ended up tripping over this 2x in a row, because i figured i'd
screwed something up, and so i tried it all again, but i still
didn't remember to put in moutn point names...
