From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (Win98; U)

Description of problem:
When partitioning the hard drive with Disk Druid, I specified the cylinders for the swap, boot and root using the command "Edit".  I 
unfortunately chose the cylinders for the root partition that ended exactly on the same cylinder as the cylinder that Windows fat 
system began.  For example cylinder 766 was the end of the root partition and cylinder 766 was the starting cylinder of the WIndows 
98 partition.
