Bug#394963: installation: Problems with dual booting Dell D600

I think its problem with compatibility with windows and linux partman.
don't forget, windows server can use "dynamic disc", that is not compatible with anything. desktop versions of windows can use this type
of partitions, after bit modification in 4 system files.

Second think, this can be problem with geometry interpretation. I have bad experiences when I partition disk with different tools from different systems. I suggest rather to create all needed partitions under windows, then under debian installer only change types and re-format that partitions, and assign to mountpoints. It allways works me.

I notice, microsoft has problems with this own products. There are some
incompatibilities between windowsXP and windows9x partitioning tools.
