    I am trying to set-up Debian 6.0.3 with Falko's tutorial here:

    Is there anyway to avert the horrible software partitioning system with the Debian set-up? I am using hardware raid on the motherboard (Raid5 6x80 GB) When I get to the set-up area to use entire volume or config with LVM, I am run in circles. The OS recognizes the Raid 5, then breaks it right back down into 80 GB chunks.

    Why would a system recognize a Raid (which unites the HDs as ONE large drive), ask if you want to use the "Guided partitioning - use entire disk (which should be the Raid volume @ 400GB) then turn around and ask you which 80 GB of the 6 listed to use? Backwards. So, you go through the (illogical) motions anyway, "All files in one partition" (again, only showing 80 GB of a 400 GB recognized Raid).

    Anyway, none of this seems to matter the choice that I make, I end up with the same error "No root file system is defined"

    Thanks as always for the help....
