Hi everybody,

After looking back at my /etc/fstab, everything seems ok to my eyes.
The problem happens when the script checkroot starts.  When it tries to
remount / in read-only to fsck it, I got a message like that
mount : bad option or / was is not mount (Something like that... I knew I
should take it in note).

Any idea?
