OK, attached is some additional information.

I have saved /var/log/partman just after entering the
partitioning menu in the file "partman", after entering the
submenu for (presumably) partition 2 on the ide1 slave disk in
"partman-2", after configuring that partition in "partman-3",
after undoing the configuration to the apparently wrong partition
in "partman-4".

I have also saved /var/log/messages and /var/log/syslog.
Never mind the "mount" diagnostics due to my own bickerings in
the shell.

The output of uname -a is in "uname.out," the output of
package-versions is in "package-versions.out" (suggesting partman
version 40 was used), and the contents of the /dev hierarchy
as seen by the "find" emulation of the installer shell is in

Finally, I added output of "lspci" and "fdisk" after booting
from Knoppix 3.4.

Thanks for your timely response.
