Description Tom Browder 2007-06-06 15:39:58 EDT

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.
