If you try and install and a computer that has already been partitioned for
DOS/win then the only way to get the automatic partitioning behaviour is to
goto the console and fdisk the drive deleteing everything. Then go through
the disk druid thing again.
 A button that said "I don't care, take all my drives and leave no
prisoners" would be nice.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1.have disk partitioned.
2.enter installer.
3.be faced with manual partioning in disk druid.

Actual Results:  I had to do a paritioning manually.

Expected Results:  A button that you wipe everything and "Do The Right Thing".

Currently we only offer this choice for Server class installs.

Will consider your suggestion for future releases.
