I had a similar problem with RH7.0. Diskdruid complained that there was no 
primary partition available. I solved it by deleting/rearanging old partitions.
I guess the requirement was that both /boot and / had to be on primary 
partitions which you can have only 4 on each hard drive. What is exactly the 
error messages you get from diskdruid?

What are these special parameters for?

Comment 3 Glen Foster 2001-02-17 23:31:26 UTC
We (Red Hat) should really try to resolve this before next release.
