Aha.  To bad I don't read French.  I believe I remember something
about that one.  I should have a closer look when there are some
English information available.

I finally got write access.  I'll try to merge our changes.
Unfortunately, I just discovered that the sources are very different.
I'm not sure what Tollef did to the source before he imported it into
the Skolelinux CVS, but it will not be a simple merge.  I will have to
check with him what he changed outside CVS.

The Skolelinux project present the user with three profile options;
Server, LTSP-server and Workstation.  Any and all of these three can
be chosen (multiselect).  The partition table can be different if you
choose server, server+ltsp-server, server+workstation or
tlsp-server+workstation.  I believe the best way to handle this is to
split the partition tool in two, one doing the partitioning work, and
one choosing which partition profile.  This way, the partitioning tool
can be shared between Debian and Skolelinux, while the profile chooser
can be written to meet the needs for Skolelinux.

It will take a few days, as the sources have very different
organisation. :-(
