I have a follow-up remark.

Before CentOS, I've been using Slackware as my main OS on servers and
desktops. My policy for partitioning and formatting was always "Keep It
Simple", e. g. :

* use traditional fdisk with DOS-MBR style partitioning on systems that
supported it

* use GPT-style partitioning on systems that required it (like huge
drives or EFI systems)

As far as I can tell, the CentOS installer is doing something similar,
but "automagically". Please correct me if I'm wrong.
