From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.6-ph-01 i686)

Description of problem:
In graphical installer, when in the "Select monitor" screen (X config)
Click on the "Back" button, and the installer immediately starts writing to
the floppy, making a boot diskette.  (Hopefully just unnecessarily
overwriting the boot diskette that was just made)

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. graphical install
2. get to "select monitor" screen
3. click back button

Actual Results:  Wrote to diskette.

Expected Results:  Should only write to diskette when *leaving* the create
boot diskette screen, not when entering from behind.

I've verified this behavior.

We (Red Hat) really need to fix this defect before next release.
