Description of problem:
This is beta-2 that showed up on tech list today (July 16)
During install I choose custom, and since my partions where already there 
i choose disk druid. I went to set my mount points and decided to go with 
convert to ext3, I was hoever never givin the option to format these 
partions doing this. So basically eventhough I never intended to do an 
upgrade, thats what I got. Other than that though everything was peachy.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install on a system with a previous version of redhat on it.

It appears that version 7.1 was left on the machine and 7.2 was installed side 
by side....needless to say thats not good, so im going ahead and wiping this 
box and doing a clean install of 7.2.

Warning dialog added so that if you don't select to format a system partition,
we warn you that it's recommended that you do so.
