I'm trying to do an HD install of knoppix, and I've created a main and swap partition using cfdisk.
However when I run knoppix-install, it doesn't detect the swap partition. It just says "no swap partitions are needed" in the install summary.
I tried changing the HD_CHOICE option in .knofig to "/dev/hdb3", but the installer then gives the error "Check failed for SWAP_CHOICES (/dev/hdb3)...".

cfdisk shows my partitions as follows:


Name Flags Part Type FS Type [Label] Size (MB)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
hdb2 Primary Linux 8389.79
hdb5 Logical W95 FAT32 5239.51
hdb6 Logical W95 FAT32 31453.48
hdb3 Primary Linux swap 419.49
Primary Free Space 34521.51


hda contains my main bootable windows xp partition.
Does anyone have any ideas why the installer doesn't see the swapdisk?
