Description of problem:
After renaming `DOS' to `Windows 2000' and adding `Windows 95' and `Red Hat
Linux 7.3' to the set of bootable systems, I went back to disk druid.  When I
went forward and got to the boot options screen again, it still said `Windows
2000' instead of `DOS', but the options I had added were gone.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Add more bootable systems in the boot screen
2.Go back to partitioning
3.Go frward to bootable systems

Actual Results:  Previously-added options are gone.

Expected Results:  Keep them.

Did you hit 'Next' on the bootloader screen?

Changes do not take affect until you hit the Next button.

Comment 2 Alexandre Oliva 2002-08-02 17:17:29 UTC
Yeah.  The first time I ran into the problem, I had gone all the way to package
selection, then decided to go back and change partitioning info.  Sorry that I
failed to mention this in the bug report.

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2002-08-05 19:01:23 UTC
We have to reset boot loader information if you go back to partitioning as it
could very easily affect what your boot loader choices are.  Being more
intelligent about keeping added entries might be possible for a future release,
but not at this point for this one.
