If I remember correctly, there was a utility called Disk Druid on
RH5.2 which allowed you to both partition the drive and assign
the root. You could also partition the drive using the linux fdisk
but the next screen brought you into the Druid where you could
assign the root (/).
Basically, you need to tell the system where to mount the various
partitions on the directory tree. I usually assign /mnt/c and
/mnt/d to my dos partitions at this stage in the installation
although this can also be done later.
