I have worked through MANY redhat and fedora installations over the years, most
of them installing new over existing /boot, /, and swap partitions (I always
protect my data on their own partition, /usr/local, which is not formatted).
It has always been an irritant that a clean install defaults to completely wipe
out one's data if not careful. The menu has improved but I would I would like
to see the following features for a standard Fedora install:
1. If there are any linux partitions found, the default should be to customize
the linux partitions. Let the user change that if desired.
2. During a custom partitioning selection, any existing partition label should
be retained, even though the partition is formatted.
