having problem. Try to follow the steps in Installation Guide:
1. beofdisk -d
2. beofdisk -w
3. beoboot-install -a /dev/hde

At the step three I get the following:
Creating boot images...
Building phase 1 file system image in /tmp/beoboot.2056...
ram disk image size (uncompressed): 1452K
Kernel image is:    "/tmp/.beoboot-install.2055".
Initial ramdisk is: "/tmp/.beoboot-install.2055.initrd".
Installing beoboot on partition 1 of /dev/hde.
mke2fs 1.18, 11-Nov-1999 for EXT2 FS 0.5b, 95/08/09

whether /dev/hde1 is mounted.
can't create lock file /etc/mtab~2108: No such file or directory 
(use -n flag to override)Failed to mount boot partition.

Any hints of what I'm doing wrong?
Thanks, /jon
