Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 136
Problems arousing by selecting Workstation Install
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:48 EDT
I selected the workstation, type of installation and 5.2,
automatically, changed the partition table and moved the
previously created ext2 and linux-swap partitions to the end
of the drive, rearranging the partition table and making
them three partitions, boot (ext2), swap (linux-swap) and /
(ext2). Quite interesting, but VERY DANGEROUS, since it
messed up the partition table, not taking into account my
other operating systems, and disabling NT4 (installed in
another partition). Shouldn't I have been warned before the
changes took place?
There are notes in the Red Hat Installation Manual that this will be
the behaviour if you choose Workstation Install.
For the most complete control over the install, you need to choose
'custom.' Keeping a machine dual-bootable requires 'custom'
installation and a bit more knowledge.
