I want sda1 /boot to be my boot, why is it default selecting sda3 / , in "Boot Loader Operating system list" ??


Use fdisk to partition your disk how you want it (i.e. boot into rescue mode first), then install FC11, it will not be able to swap things around :)

There should be a be an option in Anaconda that says something like "Let fedora organize the disk layout" or "Let user organize the disk layout" (God forbid!)

I cannot understand why you even have the option to create custom disk layout if it's simply going to try an out smart you when you're done.

Below is my /Grub/menulist file, Now that I have finnished installing.
My partition layout;

sda1  ext3   /boot
sda2  ext4   /home
sda3  ext4   /
sda4  Extended
sda 5   Swap

How can I edit to boot off of sda1 /boot ,  instead of sda3 / .
