Bug Description

Binary package hint: ubiquity

A coworker bought a new Thinkpad X60S today, and I helped her install Dapper on it, from the shipit CD. Step 6 of the graphical installer offered her to resize the existing NTFS partition. There was a slider labeled "New partition size".

It is completely unclear whether it chooses the new size of the existing NTFS partition, or if it chooses the size of the new Dapper partition. We had to make a guess, guessed wrong, and then had to reinstall.
