1.6 shark install kernel.
the sysinst partition offset/size editor treats "return" badly.
return w/ no number entered is interpreted as "0",
which is hardly ever what you want and a little bit
surprising (at least to me).
it should probably treat it as "no change."
start with a standard partition, edit one of the partitions to
changes its offset/size.
hit return at offset prompt, to mean "what's there already."
enter size you want. note that when you're done, you've now
got a partition at offset 0.
