Thank you, I read about that and wasn't sure, because so many people's
examples contained them.

Hm, I have a pretty similiar recipe with raid and this works..raid &
lvm. I just tested it again to be really sure. There is no

Well, I have to admit that I didn't make this calculation by hand.

Sure. See my reply to Raf Czlonka with the "real" recipe. I thought that
100MB would tell me something about the error, something quicker/easier
than proving it with 9 partitions/elements for the formula. At this time
of the installation, no information about the wanted packages are
available and even if 100MB are not enough for a base system, it has
*nothing* to do with this calculation.
