Will do, though it will take me a few days to get hold of one.

But that's exactly what I've done, my disk is pre-partitioned to my
satisfaction. But unless the partitioning tool starts up, how can I tell
it which partitions to use as / and swap? I am assuming here that I have
to select the manual partition option -- if I use any of the others: use
hda1 / use hda2/ use largest free space, I shudder to think of what it
will do to my oh-so-nicely partitioned disks.
