This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Fairfax.
Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2001-07-25 12:08:04 EDT
We cannot reproduce this defect report.

Please give detailed instructions on the steps you took to partition the system.
Comment 3 Michael Fulbright 2001-07-25 12:17:28 EDT
Meanwhile we will try again with a system with NT installed on NTFS (is this
your situation?).
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2001-07-25 23:48:04 EDT
Fixed in CVS
Comment 5 Daniel Powell 2001-07-26 00:51:36 EDT
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
