Description Fedor Bokov 2000-11-22 14:58:00 EST
installing RedHat 7 on system with Solaris/x86 partition unconditionally 
overwrites that Solaris partition because partition ID of Soalris is the 
same as Linux swap.
now installer does not ask about which swap partitions to use and 
unconditionally formats(mkswap)/activates(adds them to fstab) ALL Linux 
swap partitions.
I belive it should provide a list of found Linux Swap (Solaris) partitions
and asks about which one(or more) to use as swap.
