If you try to install in non expert mode 2 problems :

1. If you already have a dos >32M partition redhat would
reside in ext. partition and thus could only be accessed
through MBR (which migth be changed by other o.s.
installation proccess).
2. If you don't have a dos partition and you create it when
installing Cartman, it would be created within ext.
partition and thus could not be accessed as "C:" from
MicroSoft O.S.'s.

This is the default behavior of Disk Druid.  Fdisk is available in expert mode
installations for user who would like to customize their partitions.
