Exclamation Replace Autopartition force partition order! ROCKS Cluster

I would like to know if its posible to force a partition to be first with a custom replace autopartition file.
How can I make the replace autopartition to do an ntfs partition instead of vfat.
Heres my replace autopartition:

<?xml version="1.0" standalone="no" ?> 
- <kickstart>
  <description>Replace autopartition</description> 
  <changelog /> 
- <main>
  <part>/win --size 18500 --ondisk sda --fstype vfat</part> 
  <part>/linux --size 7700 --ondisk sda</part> 
  <part>/ --size 6800 --ondisk sda</part> 
  <part>swap --size 2000 --ondisk sda</part> 
  <part>/apps --size 2000 --ondisk sda</part> 
  <part>/state/partition1 --size 1 --grow --ondisk sda</part> 
  <post /> 
Heres what I get after installing rocks with replace autopartition in a node.

fdisk -l gives this, after changing the partition from vfat to ntfs manually:

Device 		Boot	Start	End	Blocks		Id	System
/dev/hda1	*	1	867	6964146		83	Linux
/dev/hda2		868	3225	18940535	7	HPFS/NTFS
/dev/hda3		3226	4207	7887915		83	Linux
/dev/hda4		4208	5221	8144955		5	Extended
/dev/hda5		4208	4462	2048256		83	Linux
/dev/hda6		4463	4717	2048256		82	Linux swap
/dev/hda7		4718	5221	4048348+	83	Linux

Again, what i would like to do is have the first partition as a windows partition with ntfs system
