Right, hit <send>, then thought of one more annoyance: the stupid
graphical custom partition option will NOT do what you tell it: I want
/boot first, then swap, *then* /, but if you don't do it the way I
mentioned in my last post - <alt><f2> and parted, it renumbers and
reassigns your partitions Magically <fairy dust/>, and puts / after /boot,
and before swap. For no particular reason, and with no explanation.
