Description of problem:
Here is the error message I get on my laptop after telling it to
remove the existing Linux partitions and automatically partition:

Error Partitioning

Could not allocate requested partitions:

Unsatisfied partition request

The error is occurring on an IBM Thinkpad T41 model number 2479-DKU.

Additional info:
Comment 1 John D. Ramsdell 2004-10-19 10:46:26 EDT
The model number of the laptop is 2379-DKU, not 2479-DKU as I
originally reported.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2004-10-19 11:53:53 EDT
This should be fixed post-test3.
Comment 3 Wade Mealing 2004-10-23 22:03:15 EDT
Installed today (Oct 24) , I think this is the same problem.

I chose automatic partitioning, remove all linux partitions, then hit

Could not allocate request partitions:
requested FilesystemType needs a flag that is not available.

This is on a ibook though.
