No. Auto-partitioning is only possible for bigger disks. I don't
remember which size is the limit.

Uh. That would mean the errors dialogs get the two buttons which is
definitely not what expected...

However, I'm not really sure which package you *really*
used...because, you seem to have been hit by some bad handling of the
"Back" buttons.

Others should be able to have better ideas than myself..:)
