liveinst doesn't inform users about filesystem to be dd'd (F11beta)

Description of problem:
I tried to install F11beta with / on /dev/sda2. Since I have only one partition for this, I tried to format / as ext3.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot F11beta livecd (Gnome)
2. Start installer, selecting ext3 for /
3. Install proceeds, then fails at the end because / was formatted ext4 rather than ext3
Two bugs with other details that may be useful: #492727 and #493139
Due to the way that live installs work, you get the filesystem that the live image itself is, which in F11's case, ext4. The UI should make this more obvious though.
Dies this mean that it is impossible to install the beta from the LiveCD without a separate /boot partition?
That would be my assumption.
Correct, you'll need a /boot to do an install from livecd.
