>Organization:
>Environment:
5.1_rc3 (31-Jul-2010 build) amd64
>Description:
While sysinstall now recognizes large disks, in this case a 1.5TB Seagate, it fails when it tries to partition the disk.  If the disk is partitioned into 256M (/), 1024M (swap), 256M (/var), 500G (/home) and the remainder to /usr, the /home and /usr partitions will be reported as extending beyond the end of the physical disk and the installation will either hang or fail with an error message.
