Description of problem:
If computer has more than one IDE-disk, it will give funny things in partiotioning while using fdisk. I have old system to computer, where was /dev/hda & /dev/hdb with
old partitions. First I delete all partitions from hda, next create new partitions to hda; still ok. Then I delete all hdb-partitions and when I delete the last partition, I
wonderer when last partition from hda jump to hdb???
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start installation to computer where are more than one IDE-disks, use fdisk to partitioning
2. create couple of partitions to hda, that's ok
3. next create/delete partitions from hdb, when last partition has been deleted you see when last partition
from hda "jumps" to hdb...
Actual Results: wonderer user at least
