Bug#16077: dinstall partitioning ignored extended partition

retitle 16077 [FIXED?] dinstall partitioning ignored extended partition

A long time ago you submitted this bug:

|> I installed debian 1.3 on a pentium a few days ago, with an
|> extended dos drive from cylinders 0 to 266.  I have three logical
|> drives, from 1-8 9-100 101-199, with cylinders 200-266 being part
|> of the extended drive, but not part of any logical drive.

|> On installing debian, forgetting about my extended drive, the linux
|> partition started on cylinder 200, and did not tell me about the
|> extended drive.  Apparently OS/2 does the same thing.

We believe this problem with libfdisk was fixed a while ago.  Could
you please confirm or infirm that?  If we don't hear from you, we'll
probably close the bug soon.
