cfdisk or not cfdisk? Difficult to document...

Installing slink with boot-floppies 2.1.8 on a laptop Compaq Armada 1570. When 
choosing "Partition a hard disk":

Invalid partition table

cfdisk has failed while trying to repartition your disk...

But cfdisk, from the shell, works fine and partitions without any trouble.

Note: all the Compaqs have a custom partition, /deb/hda3, for hardware setup 
and diagnostic tools.
