Sorry to jump in this late, but which version of the boot-floppies are
you talking about? On current versions, the active partition is
detected when normal installation starts, so the user won't be asked
again. (There was a bug on previous versions that made the active swap
partition go undetected, but IIRC that has been fixed early on the 2.1.x
