Bug#385070: debian-installer: [etch-beta3] installer fails to mount second JFS volume

Package: debian-installer
Severity: important

Installer was unable to mount second of two JFS volumes

I have 2 JFS volumes: for / and for /home.
Installer had problems with mounting both of them in unpredictible way,
so I ended up with formatting the root partition (sda5) and not mounting
/home in the installer.
The log on the console 4 said something about not being able to mount
XFS (sic!). So I installed using following technique:
1. step through all installer screens up to part man
2. use /dev/sda5 as jfs
3. do not use /dev/sda7
4. go to console && modprobe -r xfs
5. go back to installer and proceed with formatting /dev/sda5
6. be happy debian user again =)

# parted /dev/sda p
Disk /dev/sda: 200GB
Sector size (logical/physical): 512B/512B
Partition Table: msdos

Number  Start   End    Size    Type      File system  Flags
 1      32,3kB  140GB  140GB   primary   fat32        boot, lba
 2      140GB   200GB  60,0GB  extended               lba
 5      140GB   150GB  10,0GB  logical   jfs          boot
 6      150GB   152GB  1999MB  logical   linux-swap
 7      152GB   200GB  48,0GB  logical   jfs

ps: thanks for your great work.
