Default kickstart+part

Empty disk before install, both fedora 7 and 8.

When I use part like this in a ks-file:
#Partition clearing information
clearpart --all --initlabel
#Disk partitioning information
part /reboot --fstype=vfat --size=256 --asprimary
part / --fstype=ext3 --size=40000 --asprimary
part swap --size=2048 --asprimary
part /scratch --fstype=ext3 --size=1 --grow --asprimary

..they don't show up in that order. Is there a way to tell fedora to
keep the order? I tried using anaconda too, with the same result.


regards
Bjørge

PS. --onpart would not work since the partition table is empty or
different before install.

I've always done the partitioning in %pre and used onpart. You can also get
things in the desired order if you use --onpart for only the second out of three
partitions, but I don't know of a way to do this with four partitions. This
probably deserves a BZ, as it's been around (and annoying) for quite a while.

BZ?

I'm opting to do it in %pre too, but it should be possible to do in the
kickstartfile, imho.
