Re: Strange Disk Partitionaing issue with Clean Fedora 11 Upgrade

I've had a strange result when doing a clean update to Fedora 11 on my classroom lab systems. The machine currently has 98, XP, and Fedora 10. 98 is sda1
XP is sda5
Boot is sda6
LVM is sda7 (root and swap)

The sda7 is 37953MB

I go thru the installations, and tell it to replace existing Linux on disk.
The sda7 partition is changed to 33210MB and leaves 4743MB of Free Space? Any ideal why it would reduce the size of the partition?
May I take a guess? It took the size of / and made the partition that, and wants swap to be another partition. That's a guess, no refund if wrong.
