Description Peter Verthez 2004-04-14 06:27:31 EDT
Description of problem:

  At multiple times during the installation, anaconda refers to
  a "boot disk":
    - after partitioning (if the partition on which Linux will be
      installed is probably not bootable from)
    - when choosing not to install a boot loader

  Since anaconda doesn't provide the means to make a boot disk
  anymore (I understood from other bug reports that a boot disk is
  not possible anymore, due to the kernel being too big), these
  messages should be suppressed, or rephrased, to avoid confusion.

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

How reproducible: always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Core 2 test 2.
2. Choose a partition for "/" that is too far on the disk to be bootable.
3. Choose not to install a boot loader.
Actual results:

  Anaconda refers to a boot disk

Expected results:

  Since boot disks are not possible anymore, they should not be
  referred to by Anaconda.

These should all be gone in FC3 test releases.
