Sorry, but we dont have the bootfloppies yet. thats why I think the installtion
isnt easier. Because of my job I havent so much time to work on it. On the other
way, it isnt clear which lib will be used, either libfdisk or libparted.
The problem now is that the give libfdisk the Sgilabelsupport but it dont work.
Guido wrote me that, when he have some time he will a have an other look on it.
