Description Jaroslaw Sosnicki 2001-02-19 20:49:24 EST
I have booted my system from bootnet.img via NFS mounted RawHide image.
When I select auto partition option "Installing Packages" windows pops-up 
and message box "Formatting / filesystem..." It sits for about 10 minutes 
before changing to "Formatting /home file system" which in turn takes 30 
minutes. At this rate installing Linux on 9.1GB SCSI drive will take at 
least 3HR. 

Drive contained RH 7.0 system before. I manually removed all partitions 
using fdisk while disk was attached to my other linux system.
