From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
2 HD system,  first one is decidated to Linux (8GB) and the second HD 
without any partition on it (15GB), my backup files. Installing linux for 
the second time without deleting the first installation caused my backup 
FAT32 HD data unreachable. Linux only uses the empty space in the HD, but 
i cannot reach my FAT32 data by any means.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the Server automatically to first HD : hda
2. Then, Install Workstation version automatically (supposedly hda)

Actual Results:  It leaves the first HD swap in the /hda but installed 
itself to the second HD /hdb. wihtout any warning. it disabled FAT32 data 
access through Linux.

Expected Results:  It should have installed itself to the Linux decicated 
HD, which has already Linux native partition.

I don't understand...you say that hdb has no partitions on it, but it contains
data?  That can't be right...

think of hdb as only one partition (15GB FAT32)with no logical drives.

I have not seen this happen before and I cannot explain why this happened. 
However, all the disk handling code has been replaced, so you should not see
this issue in the future.
