Description of problem:
When installing onto a disk with no pre-existing disk label such as a newly
initialized raid container, disk druid states "Unable to open /tmp/sda --
unrecognized disk label."  After using parted to create an msdos disk label
and rebooting, disk druid continues normally.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install beta 1 on freshly initialized raid container	
2.Note "unrecognized disk label" error when disk druid tries to read disk label

Expected Results:  Disk druid should create appropriat disk label on new
disk and continue normally.

next dialog.
