Newbie F17 Install question
I took the Fedora 17 Electronic Lab variant, which came as a dvd which I wanted to install. I hit the 'Install to Drive" button; Anaconda started, examined the disks(but didn't ask me anything), took me through language, keyboard, and root password. Here I aborted, because I think I should have chosen the disk partition before that.

I want to set /dev/sda10 as /, /dev/sda7 as /home, and /dev/sda5 as /boot. Do I get that option? If not, what should I do? I don't want an LVM. Slackware64 is on there, and windows (spit) vista has not been deleted, and justifies that occasionally.

According to the installation guide it looks like disk partitioning is after setting the root password.

Well, Thank you, I risked it and went ahead. As you said, the hard disk options came later. Installed on sda10, I have some monkeying to do before I can get /home on board (usermod stuff, a backup and a try of CEELD) and I even managed to get wifi going. Now I'm off for the groupinstall command on this thing. I don't particularly like it yet, but that's strangeness and ignorance on my part.

There seems to be a lot of cgroups stuff going on. I am running a twincore turion, and will have to read up on that (one day).
