Keeping partitions (again)

I've carefully read the autoyast partitioning documentation,I've gone
through the last four months of archives, I've done the y2update thing
from http://www.suse.de/~nashif/autoinstall/y2update/ and have verified
that this is mounted and read - and still I can't get my partitions the
way I want them. "Not enough free space on /dev/hda", alternatively "No
free space" when creating the partition plan.

Current partitions:
/dev/hda1 /boot ext2
/dev/hda2 / reiserfs
/dev/hda3 swap swap
/dev/hda4 /scratch reiserfs

I want to keep /scratch without formatting and smash the other three into
two partitions, / and swap:

<partitioning config:type="list">
<drive>
<device>/dev/hda</device>
<partitions config:type="list">
<partition>
<create config:type="boolean">true</create>
<format config:type="boolean">true</format>
<mount>/</mount>
<partition_id config:type="integer">131</partition_id>
<partition_type>primary</partition_type>
<partition_nr config:type="integer">1</partition_nr>
<size>max</size>
</partition>
<partition>
<create config:type="boolean">true</create>
<filesystem config:type="symbol">swap</filesystem>
<format config:type="boolean">true</format>
<mount>swap</mount>
<partition_id config:type="integer">130</partition_id>
<partition_type>primary</partition_type>
<size>2gb</size>
<partition_nr config:type="integer">2</partition_nr>
</partition>
<partition>
<create config:type="boolean">false</create>
<format config:type="boolean">false</format>
<mount>/scratch</mount>
<partition_nr config:type="integer">4</partition_nr>
</partition>
</partitions>
<use>1,2,3</use>
</drive>
</partitioning>

I've tried several variations, including fixed size for /, changing the
/scratch partition number, but the error message remains the same. Setting
"initialize" on the drive made it kill /scratch as well. Any suggestions
to what I'm missing?
