installer doesn't accept valid partitioning scheme.

fc6 install on pSeries with the following partitioning:
- PReP boot
- 1GiB swap
- ext3 rootfs
The installer doesn't let me -- it says there's no boot partition close enough
to the beginning of the disk for OpenFirmware. That's not true -- the above
scheme would work fine.
Per IBM (long ago, but nevertheless), the /boot bits need to be below 4G and so
anaconda enforces that. It's easy to not have that check, but I'm not going to
pull it unless we are 110% sure that it won't break things.
OK, that makes a certain amount of sense -- but can we have the message tell us
that? (the 4GiB bit).
Changing at this point breaks all the translations -- we can improve the message
