Bug#283095: debian-installer: want to use preexisting partitions without data loss

Package: debian-installer
Severity: important

I installed two machines recently and wasn't able to find a way to reuse
some linux partitions that existed from an earlier linux installation on
the same harddisk. This wasn't very problematic for me, but I guess
those who don't know linux good will have problems to find a solution
for this.

Everything else went smoothly with the two athlon machines I used the
installer on during the last week.

        Best regards (and thanks fro your great work!)
