The real solution would be to have a single harddisk partitioning menu
entry, which would have many submenus : autopartitioning, partitioner,
parted, cfdisk, ....
The next step would be partconf, which will also write the fstab, as
discussed elsewhere.

Everything else is a less than satisfactory solution, but then nobody
seems to care, i am busy with powerpc kernels right now, and nobody has
confirmed that this is even possible (or not) with the current modular
main menu approach.
