Hi All !

Since openSUSE 11.1 will have brand new expert partitioner, I would like to
request the ability to use SUSE's partitioner for partition hard disks for
other operating systems.

Currently it is not possible, because SUSE requires mounting "/" root partition.

In some cases I need to install third-party OSes before I install openSUSE, so
I want to use SUSE flexible partitioner to partition and format the hard disk,
then install the other OSes and only in the end I want to install openSUSE.

So in a nutshell you want to use the partitioner as a separate program (started
from the DVD) without the other installation features like package managment.

Not mounting "/" during installation will certainly lead to a failure so I
hesitate to remove the check. But we could add a special mode with disabled

openSUSE Feature:
