From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows 98)


with this configuration:
hda1 FAT32
hda2 FAT32
hda3 Linux Native
hda4 Linux Swap

(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 
is:

hda1 Linux Native
hda2 Linux Swap
hda. FAT partitions

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.partition the disk as mentioned with redhat's fdisk
2.install normally
