Someone reported this earlier, and I checked in a fix.  It is only
available on the woody boot-floppies, however.  If you could test
the woody boot-floppies to see if they recognize your partitions
correctly, perhaps we could convince Adam to allow this patch to
be backported to potato.

You can find the latest woody boot-floppies at
