    /dev/hda is like the name of where the partition is.

    the hd stands for hard drive and the letter after that is like which hard drive it is a is number one b is number 2, like if you have more then one hard drive

    all i know is that it tries to install reiserfs or something like that and then it tries to mount /dev/hda on / and fails

    did you choose reiserfs for the partition type? if not then perhaps the kernel doesn't have support for it can get the exact error for us

    Have you tried reinstalling and choosing a different partition type and seeing what happens?
