In F16 is it still possible to force creation of MSDOS partition table
without GPT using a kickstart script ?

Or with some boot/cmdline option?

Afaik for example rhel5 Xen pygrub has issues with GPT,
and it'd be good to be able to install F16 domUs on rhel5 Xen
by forcing creation of msdos partition table..

As of Final TC1 (anaconda 16.21) this should be possible by passing
'nogpt' as a kernel parameter to the installer.

I tried F16 Final TC1 with "nogpt" boot option but it didn't work unfortunately..
