Description Enrico Scholz 2001-08-23 10:28:53 EDT
While installing rc1 on a HP Omnibook XE3 where

hda1 is a 256MB sized IMB Thinkpad hibernation partition (0xa0) and
hda2 is a 9GB sized VFAT Win98 partition,

both partitions are shown as vfat in the table presented by disk-druid.
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2001-08-24 12:46:00 EDT
This is because the filesystem has FAT magic on it and that takes precedence
over partition type.  We're going to look at trying to make this more granular
for a future release.
Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2002-03-26 12:46:20 EST
Deferring to future release.
Comment 3 Red Hat Bugzilla 2006-02-21 13:48:06 EST
Changed to 'CLOSED' state since 'RESOLVED' has been deprecated.
