From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98)

Description of problem:
When I tried to create the partitions, /swap was not on the mount point 
dropdown menu.  I typed in "/swap" but the installer overwrote it as "<swap>".  
At the end of the installation process, an error report was displayed and 
advised reporting the bug.  Please see below for details.

Error report;

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "/var/tmp/anaconda-7.0.1//usr/lib/anaconda/iw/progress_gui.py", line 20,
