Setting up swap partitions in rc2 does not create an extended partition at 
sda5, it will only go to sda4.
A linux native partition must be put in to force an extended partitioning 
scheme on that drive. 

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. add 3 swap partitions on one drive
2. the fourth will not go into extended mode, it will be primary
3. no more partitions can be made

Actual Results:  No more partitions could be made

Expected Results:  Ability to make more partitions

We (Red Hat) should really try to fix this before next release.
