Description of problem:
  When you have a dos partition as the 1st partition on a system.  The install
will be unable to create a usable boot loader configuration.  This is fairly
important as both my laptops require a dos partition to use their suspend to
disk function.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Use fdisk to create the following paritions in this order:
128M vfat
512 swap
the rest /

install normally


Actual Results:    I was unable to install a working boot loader configuration.

Additional info:

  You can configure lilo or grub by hand on the console.

I have several systems with this setup (FAT at the start of the disk) that work.
 How does the bootloader configuration fail?
