Hmmm, I don't think that is what was going on.  I hadn't shutdown yet.
I had just finished the install, created a /mnt/hda3 dir, then did a
"mount -t ext2 /dev/hda3 /mnt/hda3".  hda3 is my / slink partition.

I'll see if I get the same message later this evening when I go to
install the potato packages that are stored on hda3.

I'll play with that also.
