Let me make this 'special boot partiotion' a little less special. It's
just that anaconda/diskdruid & friedns are not avare of situation whwre
aboot need some roughly 1MB space raw from start of the disk. So one
ust make first partition by choosing the free space and using the
'edit' button and make it start from 1 and be some needed space. That
will leave the first cylinder (usually at least 7MB) free, so aboot can
write itself to the begoning of the disk and not trash the boot
partiotion. I should be able to fix this on CentOS-4.3 tho.

I don't have above hardware (as i maintainer for Alpha/axp version)
myself, but if Karanbir days it works, i take it so.
