with this configuration:
hda1 FAT32
hda2 FAT32

(disk partitioned with fdisk included in package)

Red Had 7 Guinness graphical installer will install Linux in hda2 instead 
of hda3: the label of hda2 will become "red".
The ONLY way to install rh7 on an HDD with more than one windows partition 

hda1 Linux Native
hda2 Linux Swap

Reproducible: Always
