User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.2)

Description of problem:
Disk druid only permits 5 digits of cylinder number in the main
display, truncating on the right.  This leads to the appearance of
partitions having a lower End point than Start point.  Even with a
60GB drive, the symptom will be seen if there is free space at the end
of the drive and there is about 14GB allocated.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC2T2.
2. Delete all partitions.
3. Autopartition.
4. Observe start and end cylinder of each partition.

Actual Results:  Example:

/dev/hda1 1 203 99m ext3 /boot
/dev/hda2 204 8525 4095m vfat /mnt/wxpc
/dev/hda3 8526 29330 10239m ext3 /
FREESPACE 29331 11628 42795m FREESPACE

Expected Results:  Example:

/dev/hda1 1 203 99m ext3 /boot
/dev/hda2 204 8525 4095m vfat /mnt/wxpc
/dev/hda3 8526 29330 10239m ext3 /

Fixed in CVS to give up to 6 digits.  We can't really fit more than that in the
width of the screen, though.
