Description of problem:
The installer seems to think this is a swap partition, and demands to format it.
If you tell it not to format it (leave it alone), the installer still tries to
format it as swap, and barfs when it cannot format it.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. set a partition to type a0
2. run the installer
3. tell it to ignore it.
Actual Results: The installer chokes and dies.
Expected Results: It should Ignore it.
Apparently parted is confused about this partition.
Is this better with newer releases?
