When upgrade from 6.0, the boot disk always assume hda1 as my linux ext2,
and then spits out a msg complaining unrecognized partition. Of cource it
is wrong partition, my linux is installed in hda5. I need a chance to tell
stupid installer to search that partition ;->

More than likely, you have an NTFS partition on your system and the installer is
seeing this and choking trying to mount it as ext2.  Bugs related to problems
like this are fixed in the latest installer (available in beta).  Please reopen
this bug if you are still having problems after using the new code.
