Sorry for another posting today, but I got a problem. I get the following error:
"You cannot change a partition into an extended one or vice versa. Delete it first." in 2008 you said this, I change it correctly (probably) but it's not work.

Now I notice this on a fully fresh Debian 6 64 Bit System without any manual changes:

mdadm was already installed, it's a pre-installed RAID 1 or? The support says explicitly that RAID software would not be automatically installed, so I ask you...
