Just an update on the Hitachi drive issues (see links to previous related posts if you need more information). Kevin tested a test kernel for CentOS, and that went well so the next CentOS 5 kernel should have that fixed. I also tested the current Hardy kernel, and it is fine.

So, the installers still have issues, but if you install either in the first 120GB or the last space beyond 140GB, then do updates and allocate the remaining space, you should be fine as far as working around it. Of course, if you boot from the CDs for rescue, you may run into this problem. Hopefully, the CentOS 5.3 media when they release it should resolve this. No idea if Hardy is going to roll new install media.
