Description of problem:
After the partition phase of the installation, when RH assigns mount points,
it badly reports a FreeBSD partition (type 0xa5) as a "reiserfs" partition.
Once the installation is finished, FreeBSD does not boot anymore and one
should completely reinstall it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FreeBSD 4.7; RedHat 8.0 - both on a Pentium III PC.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install FreeBSD
2. install RH 8.0
3. add the following lines in /boot/grub/menu.lst
4. try to boot again in FreeBSD - GRUB displays "bad partition" (or something
Actual Results: I couldn't boot in FreeBSD anymore!
Expected Results: To normally boot in my FreeBSD! Once reinstalled, using the
same GRUB menu.lst file, it normally booted!
Does this still happen with newer releases?
