Package: installer
Version: installer of squeeze 6.0.2
Severity: wishlist
Tags: d-i

when installing squeeze on GPT grub needs a special BIOS BOOT partition to fake MBR.

there should be a warning/advise when creating a GPT that you need a small special partition.
it's a lot of extra work to learn this the hard way (grub install to MBR fails)
after you spent 1h on partitioning multiple disks and adding layers like RAID, LVM and crypt on it after installing the system.

of course it's just my fault to have done this for the first time,
without reading all the GPT specs, but the installer inveigled me.
