I need to preseed a dual boot installation of Ubuntu 10.04. I want partman to use all already existing Linux partitions and all free space (like the option when installing Fedora) what would that recipe look like?

use gparted if available, it don't need no stinkin' recipies (and is very robust and intuituve) –  msw Oct 15 '10 at 13:54
You could leave the answer empty, which would allow you to select it during install. –  Gert Oct 19 '10 at 8:30
No the whole idea is to make the install unattended. –  ulve Oct 20 '10 at 6:54
