ah cool, i did notice that the broken man page link seems to have been
fixed since last time i looked.  i still think my doc would be useful
to have in the debian install docs since its a more step by step
example of the partitioning process, to some this can be easier to
follow then a man page.  i was looking at just adding a second link
next to the man page link.
