Made selections then backtracked via <back> button all the way to the
beginning. First round thru was to be a 'partitionless' DOS install then
right before install was about to commence I backtracked to the druid setup
and changed to pre-made EXT2+Swap partitons. Crashed and saved to floppy
when it tried to install.
Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
1.GUI custom install with partitionless DOS install selected
2.at the last point before the install takes over, backup until druid disk
3.selected pre-made ext2+swap partitions and continued
Actual Results: It crashed, asked to save a bit of information to floppy
and waited for reboot.
On the subsequent reboot and install without all the backtracking the
install went fine no problems.
Expected Results: should have performed the install

Verified this problem. Thanks for your report.
ugh. I can see the problem here, and I'm totally rewriting this code, so
hopefully this won't happen in the next version.
Fixed with new dispatch code.
