Description Michal Jaegermann 2002-01-18 00:24:38 EST
Description of Problem:

Something new for 7.2 because _that_ bug did not happen with 7.1.

Left to its own devices, i.e. an automatic repartitioning in
a "naive first time user" mode Disk Druid writes the following
partition table:

# fdisk -lu /dev/hda

Disk /dev/hda: 16 heads, 63 sectors, 39813 cylinders
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 bytes

3 partitions:
#       start       end      size     fstype   [fsize bsize   cpg]
  a:        1    102400    102400       ext2                      
  b:   102401   4197904   4095504       swap                      
  c:  4197905  40132502  35934598       ext2

This means that no space is left for a boot block and a disk
cannot be made bootable.  It is likely too much to expect from
first time users that they will be able to resize the first partition.
