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

[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


 * Menu:

* Keyboard Layout and Networking and Partitioning:: Initial setup.
 * 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.

Kind regards,
