doesn't sound good.

for the installer that's the default, i guess. if you change the layout
you will have to mount manually before proceeding, since the installer
(imo) would not know about separate partitions for usr, var, ...
re the filesystems: the u-boot has an entry for fat+ext2 -- either you
change taht/ add an entry for ext2+ext3 or you use fat+ext2.
secondly, the installer assumes ext2 imo, since etx3 is not recommended
for sd card.
