At the risk of starting an endless argument let me say this. There are
good reasons to break up your system into that many partitions in
certain encironments. But in my humble opinion those eviroments are
rarer then most people think. In most cases I have found jsut
installing the Linux in on partition works just as well and avoids the
problems you are having.

This is just my opinion and I know other opinions exist.
