Description Alexandre Oliva 2005-11-30 11:59:28 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051118 Fedora/1.5-0.5.0.rc3 Firefox/1.5

Description of problem:
The default disk layout selection is to clear all linux filesystems, which places users' data at risk.  I believe we'd be better off with a safer default.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start an interactive install

Actual Results:  The default is to clear all linux partitions

Expected Results:  It should preserve data by default

autopartitioning.  This is the way things have worked forever
