To answer your question,

you can use fdisk on a VT (ctrl-alt-F1 -> ctrl-alt-F6) during the 
install, thats what I do all the time with centos and FC3.

In anaconda, you may have to hit the 'back' button if you have already 
gone to the disk partitioning screen, this ensures that anaconda 
re-reads the partition table etc.
