I tried with the newest version of sysinst, no luck.
I tried using those parameters you suggested, and no luck there.
Is it possible to remove the disklabel and let sysinst write it fresh? It
seems that now that I've written a label, sysinst won't write a new one. I
can change all the partition sizes except c: which is the one I was to
change to be the correct size.
I tried disklabel -e but vi gives an error about an unexpected ')'. Is
there another editor I could try?
If there is a device file for the RAW disk I could use dd and write
/dev/zero to the drive, effectively wiping it?
thanks again for the quick responses,
