From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (Win98; U)

Description of problem:
System has vfat partition in /dev/hda1  When using the autopartition feature,using the remove all linux partitions and then going back and trying 
it again, fails to find whichever partition / was put on the first time.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Go through generic install, choose any type of system (I tried Workstation, Server and Laptop)
2. Select autopartition
3. Select "Remove all Linux Partitions" (I tried this both with and without Linux partitions existing on the drive) and then ok and Yes
4. Note the mount point of / and then select  "Back"
5. Select "Remove all Linux Partitions" and then Ok and the Yes
6. Look at the error message

Actual Results:  Dialogue box (this one was the result from the workstation install option)
Title: Requested Partition Does Not Exist
"Unable to locate partition hda3 to use for /.
Press OK to reboot your system."
Button: OK

Expected Results:  A listing of partitions, sizes and mount points.

Additional info:

Windows 98(r) is also installed on hda1
