1. Need Help: "/usr/lib/setup/setup: cannot create /mnt/etc/fstab: directory nonexistent"

I recently tried to install Slack 7 on my Pentium 100Mhz, 16Mb RAM, 1Gb
HD, and every thing wa going fine until I reached "INSTALL" in the setup

Here are the steps I followed:
1) I created a boot and a root disk (bare.i and color.gz disks) as my
old BIOS cannot boot from CD-ROM.

2) Typed fdisk /dev/hda (Primary IDE Drive, 528 Cyls, Size=1089) and
created 2 partition
(I removed old DOW/Win Partition using DOS Fdisk utility):
  Device    Boot   Start      End   Blocks   Id  System
  /dev/hda1     *    1      496        999904+  83  Linux native
 /dev/hda2        497      528        64512       82  Linux swap

I saved the partition layout, and typed "setup" to start the
installation procedure.

I formatted SWAP Partition and formatted (slow formats, 1 inode per 4096
bytes) the Target partition /dev/hda1.

4) In the SOURCE section of the setup utility the system found my CD-ROM
drive with Slackware CD inserted. I selected the slackware installation.

5) In the INSTALL section I selected "full" and the system start coping,
but about 10 seconds later it stops with the following messages:
  /mnt/usr: No such file or directory
  /mnt/tmp: No such file or directory
  /usr/lib/setup/setup: cannot create /mnt/etc/fstab: directory

Please help me.
Thank You
