Description egalanos. 1999-10-28 04:19:43 UTC
If doing a text based hard drive install, the installer
(even in expert mode), does not allow a user to select a
raw block device (eg /dev/hdc) as a filesystem. hdc on
my system is a hard drive, but with no partition table, ie
the whole drive is used as a filesystem.
