Re: Bug#53564: marked as done (Install can't use NTFS partitions)

Just to be clear, I was trying to use NTFS partitions at the very early
stage of pointing at base2_2.tgz (also the drivers file).  So this was
before I had the opportunity to load the NTFS module.  I did that later,
and was able to see the paritions then.

I copied the files to a FAT partition and all went well.
Now if it's easy, it would be nice to add NTFS support to the initial
install stuff, for all those who have only NTFS on their machine....

P.S. MS has a knowledge base article on how to remove Linux from your
system.  Perhaps we could return the favor!
