    i try to restore a partition from a image which holds a RedHat WS4.0.

    i firstly mount
    mount /dev/hda1 /mnt/syspart
    cd /mnt/syspart
    /usr/bin/restore -b 60 -r -M -f /tmp/stdev
    cd /root
    install  grub on /dev/hda1
    umount /mnt/syspart

    but it always failed on umount /mnt/syspart!!

      This is probably not related to restore. You probably have some random process (a shell on another console maybe ?) still acessing /mnt/syspart, that's why it refuses to umount it.

      You can use lsof or fuser to find that process.
