This one works for me:
<partitioning config:type="list">
<partitions config:type="list">
<filesystem config:type="symbol">swap</filesystem>
<format config:type="boolean">true</format>
<partition_nr config:type="integer">1</partition_nr>
<filesystem config:type="symbol">reiser</filesystem>
<format config:type="boolean">true</format>
<partition_nr config:type="integer">2</partition_nr>
<filesystem config:type="symbol">reiser</filesystem>
<format config:type="boolean">true</format>
<partition_nr config:type="integer">3</partition_nr>
