Problem hitting back to formatting screen

I don't have an exact sequence to reproduce this, but
it more or less went like:
- Select automatic partioning
- Watch it make a 36 meg / on /hda2
- Hit Next
- Change my mind, hit back
- Split 36 megs into a 20 meg /home on /hda2 and
a 16 meg / on /hda3
- Hit next, continue with install
At the end of the install, I ended up with:
/hda2 formatted, label /home
/hda3 not formatted
And the install on /hda2. (So no / label at all,
system didn't boot, time to reinstall)
Just curious, didnt you get a warning that 36M is not enough for '/'?
Please add in the correct power of 1024 ... I meant (perhaps obviously)
gig not mem.
Thanks for the clarification.
I tried this on two machines and couldn't hit it. Can you reproduce it on
demand? I'd like to track down the problem you saw if possible.
Sorry, unfortunately, the machine I was testing on is the machine I'm
typing on now, and not really up for reinstall. I didn't try to try
to repeat the problem.
All I can suggest about reproduction is that I may have gone
more than one screen forward.... I didn't find the problem
until the machine finished installing an hour or so later, so
it was a bit vague at that point what I actually did.
(But I don't think it was anything _too_ weird.)
Feel feel to close if you feel that nothing useful can be done
without more information.
It seems unlikely I'm going to be able to address this w/o a reproducible test
