Description of problem:
When creating a new partition in Disk Druid, you cannot type in a size in MB of
the partition.  Your only option is to adjust the actual number of cylinders. 
In past releases, you have been able to type in a size in MB for the partition.
This new sizing system seems somewhat less user-friendly.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Select a manual partitioning with Disk Druid when running anaconda
2.Create a new partition

Actual Results:  You must set the size of the partition manually by setting the
range of the cylinder numbers.  

Expected Results:  I feel that it is easier for a system administrator to type
in the size of the partition in MB rather than scan through cylinder ranges.

Click New instead of Edit and you'll get the interface that allows you to
partition by size (as has been the case for the past bunch of releases)
