I'm the one that's been working on the partitioning stuff lately. While the first release of the installer will support x86 only, all the code I've been writing has been with other arches (including sparc...I've got a SPARCStation 20 and an Ultra 2) in mind also. New ideas and approaches are always a good thing. If you think you've got something to contribute, drop by the #gentoo-installer channel on the Freenode IRC network and let us know. -- Andrew Gaffney Network Administrator Skyline Aeronautics, LLC. 636-357-1548 -- gentoo-installer@g.o mailing list
