RH 7.1 and large partitions

Hi guys,

Hopefully somebody will be able to point out the obvious step I've missed
here, or the well-known bug I have failed to find!

I have a custom Kickstart CD that I built and have successfully used for a
number of months now. Apart from a recent change to remove the
kernel-enterprise package (RH didn't update this after RHSA-2002-205, but
that's a seperate story I guess) the build has worked perfectly.

This afternoon I ran the build on a Compaq server with 53GB of RAID storage,
and everything appeared to go OK during the build.

However, when I actually booted up the machine, only about 30GB of disk space
had actually been used - there was another 20GB that had simply not been
allocated by the install scripts.

The relevant section of the ks.cfg is as follows:

zerombr yes
clearpart --all
part /boot --size 8    --maxsize 35   --grow
part swap  --size 128  --maxsize 256  --grow
part /     --size 100  --maxsize 1024 --grow
part /usr  --size 512                 --grow
part /tmp  --size 100  --maxsize 512  --grow
part /var  --size 128  --maxsize 512  --grow
lilo --location mbr

and when the machine was built, I got:
# fdisk -l /dev/ida/c0d0

Disk /dev/ida/c0d0: 255 heads, 32 sectors, 13071 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 8160 * 512 bytes

         Device Boot    Start       End    Blocks   Id  System
/dev/ida/c0d0p1   *         1         9     36704   83  Linux
/dev/ida/c0d0p2            10     13071  53292960    5  Extended
/dev/ida/c0d0p5            10      6755  27523664   83  Linux
/dev/ida/c0d0p6          6756      6820    265184   82  Linux swap
/dev/ida/c0d0p7          6821      6949    526304   83  Linux
/dev/ida/c0d0p8          6950      7078    526304   83  Linux
/dev/ida/c0d0p9          7079      7336   1052624   83  Linux

(notice the discrepancy in size between the entire disk and the allocated

Thanks for any tips or pointers you may think of..
