If its so darned easy, write us up a tutorial on "how to do it properly", 
text mode so we can print it and follow along to make sure we don't wind 
up in partitioner hell when there is no network access to ask questions, 
where I have been about 10 times while trying to install the hybride.iso 
from that site.  Ditto for my orginial attempts to install wheezy from 
the Debian site before I installed the hybride.iso.  IIRC I made 3 tries 
with it, never did get it past the partitioner with anything more than / 
and swap defined.

Yeah, thats my gauntlet laying there, pick it up and answer the 
challenge.  Keystroke by keystroke starting with a powerup with the 
install disk in the optical drive.

Or, go fix the installer, I don't care which, but empty brags like this 
do nothing to alleviate the headache that the broken installer with its 
inability to recognize any partition but / forces on us. I have 
personally tried evey disk partitioner tool we have trying to make a 
disk this POS installer would accept. So we fight with it, 2, 3 hours or 
more, and finally give up and let it use its defaults, getting a / and a
