Actually, the Mandrake folks have an excellent tool which combines the
partitioning and the file system layout/specification/type construction.
If you can get the patches into the mandrake peoples hands, they could
integrate it into their tool. Right now, I can build a reiserfs based
system trivially with their file system config tool. partitioning is
trivial (much better than fdisk/disk druid) file system atop the
partitions are also trvial to specify (and are done at the same time you
lay out the partitions).
I cannot say enough good things about it.
