Re: pre-rc2 didn't detect partition table

Using cfdisk on a working installation of Linux, I had set up /dev/hda6 for the purposes of installing Debian. However, when I booted http://cdimage.debian.org/pub/cdimage-testing/sid_d-i/i386/pre-rc2/sarge-i386-netinst.iso there appeared to be no way to install to it. The installer appeared to want to zap the whole of my hard drive, which of course I wasn't prepared to let it do.

When I got the section "Partition disks", I was presented with the menu items:

   1. Configure software RAID
   2. Guided partitioning
   3. Help on partitioning
   4. IDE master (hda) - 41.2 GB IC35L040AVVN07-0

Selecting item 1

I meant item 2, not 1
