Description Hans de Goede 2000-07-27 06:37:08 EDT
With a graphical workstation install one can choose:
-automatic partition
-manual using diskdruide
-manual using fdisk

With a textmode workstation install one can only choose:
-erase existing partitions
-use diskdruide

So no way to choose fdisk, unless you do custom, and the text is different

This reminds me, it would be nice to still choice automatic partitioning
when doing a custom install for when you only want to customise the
packages to be installed. (This would make this screen the same for all
install types, making it easier to maintain too)

It is true this was an oversight on our part - due to the late stage of things
we'll have to defer correcting these issues to the next release.
Comment 2 Erik Troan 2000-12-08 12:09:10 EST
I added the ability to use fdisk on workstation/server installs, and I have
the code to allow automatic partitioning on custom installs. If others at RH
think this is a good idea, it'll make the beta.
