I think I'll write an RFE on the util-linux-ng package requesting a better error message and better documentation, assuming that there isn't one already.

I updated to F9 this past weekend and it went smoother than I had anticipated. My fstab was overwritten again and my Windows partition mount was removed again but at least I know how to fix that now.

My only other problem is that if set any time for "Put computer to sleep when inactive for:, System->Prefernces->System->Power Management, the computer does go to sleep at the appropriate time but it can not be woken up again. This issue was discussed on this list last Nov or Dec and it appears that it hasn't been fixed yet.
