Hi,

I tryed to install that new 5.1 redhad tonight, but installation
stops when selecting partitions, i cant make swap partition,
and installation wont continue without any swap.

I partitioned second disk in irix, and in boot linux finds it,
but both partitions are 'linux native', i cant change them to
'linux swap' becouse fdisk segfaults in installation. Should that
fdisk work? Could that segfault be becouse i have two disks, one 
id=0 and second id=3.

Any way to install it without swap? Or how to force sdb2
to be swap partition?

In that announcment posting there was 'copy all files from...',
i just copied "installfs.tgz" and untar it, is all files in that?
