Good catch, Margarita.  Thanks!  It did not click in my mind that I need to go back 
into the partitioner to create the filesystems and mount-points.  I'll take another look.

I just today discovered the IBM donation of EVMS to the LINUX world.  I'll bet I also

not required, what does evms-udeb add?
