Bug#248800: Acknowledgement (installer beta 4 installation report (mbr damaged, grub misdetection, cannot boot from rescue disk))

Additional info:

I think my guess about MBR damage was a false alarm. (but I've ruined
the evidence by this point). 

When I repartitioned, the "active" boot partition flag was removed from
the XP partition. I restored it in the partitioning tool and that
allowed me to boot into XP again.

Partitioning annoyances:

The partitioning tool allows you to get all of your partitions set up
before it warns you about errors. Required, but unspecified, properties
should probably be in a different color so it is more obvious.
