Description louis.aucoin 1999-10-18 16:02:39 UTC
Maybe there's a way to do it but I can't find it. I can no longer choose fdisk at installation time when carving my disk. I prefer to allocate space in cylinders and would like to do so without having to reverse MB/Cyl during every install.

Run the installer in expert mode and you will be able to choose fdisk as the partitioning tool.

What a great idea. Mine crashes in text expert mode as soon as I select to run Fdisk. Boom. Hefty trace list, installation dies. So, the double-bucky-F1 works, though, does it? Why, oh why is that so much like a left-handed Ctrl-Alt-Del?
