Question I always have a problem with hdd-install in Austrumi.

Again and again... Why is it so hard to install Austrumi on a harddisk.
Is it the installer, me or are there some solutions I am not aware off?
First I want it on a 120 gig and not on a 1000/1000 partition.
Should I start with an empty partition or is it better to begin installing it
on an already formated partition. reiser is always very quick and so is
austrumi. Complain, complain, complain, but the reason of this frustration is that
austrumi is such a nice distro; good looks, fast, nice applications, etc,etc.
Thank you for reacting,

The partition must be formatted before installing software.
MOST distros if not all have fortmatting software on the install disk.

I have no idea what "1000/1000 partition" means.
