Description of problem:
Please consider making disk druid able to be used after installation. I
like the way disk druid enables you to easily add a disk and this would be
very useful afterwards if you were adding larger disks. I usually use
cfdisk for this but it was recently removed from the util-linux package and
the RH maintainer suggested asking the anaconda people to provide this.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use disk druid in installer


Actual Results:  2.not available after

Expected Results:  would like it available after

Additional info:

I feel that disk druid would be very useful in adding and/or repartitioning
after installation. Perhaps this could be in the future combined with LVM
and online resizing to have a graphical or curses way of resizing
partitions. (Sort of like a Partition Magic like tool for RH Linux)

Assigning to msw because this relates to his work on LVM.
