Description Richard Hyde 1999-10-13 23:04:34 UTC
The installer for RH6.1 does not understand Apple disk
labels.  This disallows disks partitioned under a PPC Linux
distribution from participating in a data intact install of
RH 6.1 on a i386 box.  Destroying the partion table and
starting from scratch fixes the problem but is undesired.
