This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax.
We cannot reproduce this defect report.
Please give detailed instructions on the steps you took to partition the system.
Meanwhile we will try again with a system with NT installed on NTFS (is this
Fixed in CVS
yes, dell optiplex system... listed in beta hardware.
NTFS formatted partitions...
20 or 30G drive...
filesystem is as follows... (from memory)
[25MB /boot][20G NTFS][256MB swap][rest is linux]
I'll try the installer again tomorrow... the other partitions were ext2 from RH
7.1 and previous betas... i converted /boot to ext3 and / to reiserfs in the
installer... ended up having to use tui installer....
will test again tomorrow 7/26
