bug#35759: [Manual installation] ‘mount /mnt’'s in the ‘Partitioning’ section.

[This is for after 1.0.1, but I'd forget otherwise.]
This happened to a new user on IRC tonight, and I understand their
logic. After guided partitioning (using the installer),
installation failed, and they decided to continue manually.
Here's where they started:
3.6 Manual Installation
* Keyboard Layout and Networking and Partitioning:: Initial
* Proceeding with the Installation:: Installing.
Having just ‘partitioned’, they ‘proceeded’. The first task in
that section is ‘herd start cow-store’, which fails because /mnt
isn't mounted yet. According to our manual, that's also part of
‘partitioning’. Eh. I get why, but would prefer to reorganise
this a bit to make such errors less likely.
