Description of problem:
Cfdisk has been removed from the util-linux package for various reasons (a bad

Actual Results:  cfdisk is refreed to despite being removed

Expected Results:  no reference to cfdisk (or, cfdisk should be returned to

the next version of the Installation Guide will correctly reference which
partitioning tools are available. 

Best regards,
