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?
