Is it possible to force partitions to be primary or extended in Anaconda?

Solution Verified - Updated -


At the moment anaconda is choosing which OS slice to place either in primary parition or on extended partition.

Which is a problem because it's put / on extended partition along out /local/0. We want the option to extend /local/0 so we want to be able to force disk layout so that -

partition 1 is /boot
partition 2 is /
partition 3 is /var
partition 4 is the extended partitionpartition 5 is swap
partition 6 is/local/0

Can we do this?
