Comments/Problems:
The only error I encoutered was in _changing_ an existing partition
table.

My table was: 
1: 50MB ext2 /boot
2: 1GB swap none
3: 18.9GB ext3 /

From a previous installation of Linux, and I wanted to change it to the
above:

1: 50MB ext2 /boot
2: 1GB swap none
3: 10GB reiserfs /

So, i went into the 3rd partition and tried repeatedly to change the
size from 18.9 GB to 10 GB unsucessfully.  It would ask me to confirm,
and I would confirm and it would return and show the size as 18.9 GB
again.  I had to escape out of the parition definitions, run fdisk on
tty2 to delete partition 3, and renter again on tty1 where it then
worked flawlessly.  

Keep up the great work all!

Thanks,
David Rasch
