Debian Woody Installation on alpha


    I forgot to mention that Iam trying a new installation on 
    alpha Platform. I forgot to mention that in my previous mail.
    Sorry for that. Iam new to Debian Linux.

    I have a question regarding the installation. I made different 
    partitions with fdisk. I have 36GB disk. The first partition is 
    4GB in size. My intention is to make /usr, /var, /scratch, /boot 
    etc. all on different partitions. But during the installation 
    the installation procedure asked only for swap. Is it possible to 
    use different partitions and how I can define it during the 
    With present installation all the SW are copied to root (/) partition. 
    If it is not possible I have to repartition the disk. With fdisk 
    I have the following partitions at present on the disk: 

Disk /dev/sda: 255 heads, 63 sectors, 4427 cylinders 
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 bytes 

9 partitions: 
#       start       end      size     fstype   [fsize bsize   cpg] 
  a:        2        65        64       ext2                      
  b:       65        77        13       ext2                      
  c:       78       128        51       swap                      
  d:      129       766       638       ext2                      
  e:      767      1149       383       ext2                      
  f:     1150      1404       255       ext2                      
  g:     1405      4427      3023       ext2 

     Thanks in advance,
