I think you are talking about different things. Since at least Fedora 4
(my start point) there has been an option to customize the partitioning.
BUT when you do that, anaconda WILL re-number/re-arrange the partitions
as you create them from a blank disk. I have never discerned the
reasoning behind the way it does this. I like my partitions in
alphabetical label order but I cannot create them in that order with
I have a gpartged live-cd somewhere around here and that might be the
easiest route the next time I am installing (sometime soon with F16!)
(Hmmm, wonder if kickstart can be coerced into doing the right thing....?)
