I made a rescue disk with dac960, booted the box dac-raid was detected
correctly as rd/c0d0, no partitions yet.
Then started the debian install, cfdisk attempts to make those
illegal partitions.
So I made partitions manually with fdisk, rd/c0d0p1 and rd/c0d0p2
rebooted the box with rescuedisk, dac-raid _and_ new partitions
were detected correctly.
Still the install attempts to mount partitions rd/c0d01 and c0d02
devices in /dev/rd are OK.
