Thanks Robert.
blkid came up in VL7.0 LIVE with a different value which I used.  Tried both /dev/sda2 and the UUID for the swap line in fstab - still wouldn't accept either user or root passwords!
Will try reinstalling AND adding swap.

You can use '/dev/sda2' or find the UUID with 'blkid /dev/sda2'.

UUID=74dd31bc-3c77-41b0-adf4-0c24e0ba1acb   swap   swap  sw 0 0

Text install of 7.1 RC3 hung near/at the end of installing packages.
Tried again with gui install - completed and successfully rebooted.  (It had installed LILO.
Would not accept user password or root password.  I tried the latter with blank - no help.
Browsing with 7.0 Live, the user is in sdb6.  Looking at /etc/fstab,
#fstab generated by vinstall
UUID=a1262683-2511-4ee4-856b-29922bea241e   /   ext3   defaults  0 0
UUID=90ea6954-5d6a-4e58-b4b9-90325a005c6c   /home  reiserfs  defaults 0 0
('/' should have remained reiserfs!)  Realized that I hadn't set swap (/sda2).  How do I find that UUID?  Can I use '/dev/sda2' as on previous versions?  Or do I reinstall?

As I said earlier, text install reformatted and wrote to sda1 '/' (sdb6 '/home' was not reformatted.)
Went in this morning with VL6 and found subprocess.log
goupadd:  'Bruce' is not a valid group name
Will use gparted to reformat /sdb6 and try to install again.

Sorry about that Sad. I guess I just need to be more patient.

I'm sorry, I should have clarified that I was referring to flash plugins OTHER THAN the one from Adobe. That being said, do you happen to know of such a one?

How many times do you need to be told? Version 11.x is the only version you can use with Linux unless you use Chrome.
