Definitely doublecheck this. As you mentioned, Max, if you don't
leave enough space on the partition where /usr ends up being located,
you'll have big problems. So if your /dev/hda5 (was it?) is not
formatted and mounted as /usr (if that's what you wanted) then /usr
will end up in your root partition.

I'm not entirely sure that this is a possibility: I'm using the 2.2.x
series with all /dev/ttyS* devices, no /dev/cua* devices.
