Really? Using variable sizes for the partitions I manage to use as few
disk configurations as possible. Try to keep all machines unique. This
saves a lot of work. If you really like to call an interactive
partitioning tool, use a hook for that.

I think this should work (maybe you want to use parted instead of cfdisk):


cfdisk 1>/dev/console
< here comes the shell code that creates the file systems>
< here comes the shell code that creates the fstab file>
skiptask partition
