Description of problem:
anaconda clearpart --linux is removing non-linux partitions from selected drive.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This has happened repeatedly on systems with an NTFS/HPFS (type 7) partition both with and without actual NTFS filesystems.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Clear partitions on drive hda.
2. Create one primary partition in partition 1 of type 7 on drive hda.
3. Kickstart and include the following directives:
clearpart --linux --initlabel --drives=hda
Partition 1 is removed and disk is partitioned according to requested partitioning scheme.
Partition 1 should have been left intact and the Linux partitions should have been in later partitions on drive hda.
This occurred on both i386 and x86_64 systems.
This occurred on drives with one Windows partition of type 7 and two Windows partitions of type 7.

According to http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Anaconda/Kickstart, clearpart --initlabel creates a new disklabel on the drives specified. This is why you are losing the non-linux partitions.
