I vaguely recall fighting with the partitioning stage at one point in
the past but I think the 7.7 netinst I tried recently was much improved.

There might be one particular step which is tripping Gene up, and once
the "oh! duh! <slaps forehead>" moment passes, he'll be right.

Is there a local Linux User Group in your area? You could mention this,
and I bet there would be someone who would be keen to see what the
trouble is, i.e. sort it out in a hand holding manner or confirm that
there is some peculiarity with what you are trying to achieve.
