I had the same problem today also, but the docs say this, Yast2 does alot
more guessing, if you have a specific set of partitions you want to use
(and you do) use the original yast (boot from disk 2)

Same problem yast2 apparently asks less questions, and assumes more, I
also couldn't fit 'Defailt' plus a couple of add-ons on my 2 gig either
I suppose using yast 1 will give more flexability.

Yeah, me too. Why doesnt cut and paste work correctly? I think that
3-button emulation is not quite right. I wish that CTRL-C and CTRL-V
worked as part of KDE, and not just in specific tools that support it
it like Netscape or emacs.
