hello,

i know this has been addressed on the list in the past but it just doesn't seem to work.

in autoyast on suse 9.1 or 9.3 when i go into the partitioning section there are no drives defigned. when i select "add partition" i get the "select a drive first" dialog. so i add a drive, zero out the device entry and select initialize drive. i then go about adding partitions and i save the config. when i boot the machine it gets to the partitioning section and fails.

if anyone actually has partioning with specifying a drive working i'd really appreciate if you'd post the section.

this is the partioning section from the xml config.
