This server has two identical IDE disks.
I would like to install a Debian system on the one logical RAID 1 root partition.

Cf. Bug #325116
With this installer, Parted is in version 1.6.24.

The RAID utilities need a partition with type : Linux RAID Autodetect

But, Partman doesn't set a partition with this type.
I have this list of partition type :
- Ext3FS
- Ext2FS
- ReiserFS
- FAT16
- FAT32
- Swap area
- NewWorld boot partition
- Physical volume for LVM

I don't have a partition type FD for the RAID. :o(

I could not install a Debian system in RAID 1 on this machine.
