Worked a treat.  No further problems.  OS and DE fully installed and am 
installing extras like LibreOffice etc., and configuring it for the user.  It 
will be fully operational before I go to bed, as I had promised.

So - if you want to format an existing partition properly, so the stuff on it 
actually goes, use Gparted not the partitioner in the Jessie installer.  Sad.

Pity it took me until it tried to use CD1 to do a net-install to realise 
that!!  And I have now run out of writable CDs. :-(  I had just enough for 
this shenanigans!
