Workstation install will overwrite HD partitions with RPMS
on it?

This is very stupid.  I created an ext2 partition on the
hard drive and copied the cd over (NFS didn't work,
different bug).

I had a separate partition for everything else.

When I selected Worstation it warned me that it would
overwrite everything, including the partition with the RPMS
on it.

Clearly the isntaller needs to prevent this if it is doing a
HD installation.

Should be fixed in the Pinstripe beta.
