Description Dave J. Andruczyk 1999-10-17 03:05:12 UTC
When doing an expert install (the only way I could get
access to fdisk, which i DO NOT like). hitting control C
while fdisk is running causes a "kernel panic root fs not

Fdisk is available during normal installation in the latest installer (available
in beta.)  In addition, hitting CTRL-C in the latest installer will only take
you back a screen, not cause a kernel panic!
