Sorry, may be I was no so clear. I'am installing *on* the zip, not
*from* the zip. It's the step "Partition a Hard Disk" that shows only
the hard disk. That's why I'm not sure if it's a bug (well, there is a
message warning about the posibility of being offered a CDROM, so I
thought may be the atapi zip will be also offered...).

Installing *from* the zip 250 looks to work fine (about choose medium).
Only there is always offering /dev/hdb4 when chossed zip medium (it was
configured with only a linux partition /dev/hdb1). But there is the
custom option, so no problem.
