RE: _bug_ in afdisk

Sorry. I meant atari-fdisk. I wanted to save some time with typing less
letters - sorry.

Well I used the install disks from 98 (march perhaps). It is definitively
the pre 2.0 and it uses fdisk.... (ps on another console). If I try fdisk
from the console manually it is the same result. I willt try to get some
new install-disks (ftp.debian.org ?)

Yes it's hdb....

Well there is nothing to be dones except a bugfix to the installation
routine, which does not recognize the (correctly) printed partitions from
hda. (Linux native and so on) Perhaps because of the warnings...

Alright that's all I need :-)))
Thank you!
