Comments/Problems:

The problem is partitioning.
fdisk:
/dev/discs/disc0/part1    1     7   Dell Utilitiy
                      2    8   900   HPFS/NTFS
                      3  891  1581   OpenBSD
                      4 1582  4864   Extended

However, the partition in the installer will only show the complete drive:

Finish .. [##]
Undo

IDE1 Master - 40.0 GB ..

Help on partitioning
Guided partitioning
Configure the Logical ...

<Go Back>

When I click the IDE1 Master, it will tell me that it will remove all 
existing partitions.

Guided partitioning will either 'Erase entire disk: ..." or 'Manually 
edit partition table'.

And when I press the last, I end up with the same screen as above [##]

Is there any way to get the system installed ?
I did also try without that Extended; that is with the disk free above 
1581; but with the same result.
