Description of problem:
hda contains my RH7.3;
hdc will contain limbo

anaconda by default suggests to format the swap-partition on hda on top of the
newly created one on hdc

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install RH7.3 on hda
2. run custom install of limbo for hdc

Actual Results:  swap on hda is supposed to be formatted. Without deactivation,
a warning will come up

Expected Results:  swap on hda remains untouched and uneffected (and unformatted)

Additional info:

swap isn't persistant, therefore the installer will default to using all swap
which it finds on your system.  There's nothing wrong with this and it won't
break anything with your 7.3 installation, but it is acting just as it is
supposed to.
