Bug#101001: bootfloppies: cfdisk messes up

Package: Installation
Version: 2.3.4
Severity: important

Full version: boot-floppies 2.3.4-2001-05-31-compact

Partitioning my 30 GB Harddrive with cfdisk resulted
a non-bootable system that I wasn't able to make
bootable with lilo without reinstalling. Using fdisk
the second install instead of cfdisk revealed that the
partitions were not on cylinder boundries.
repartitioning solved the problem.

(Lilo was using lba32, linear didn't solve the
Currently, on the newly partitioned drive I'm using
lba32 and compact without a problem).

This maybe a lilo or cfdisk problem but since I'm not
sure I leave it up to the boot-maintainer to move this
to the responsible person.
