Description of problem:
Installer says to remove some packages if it encounter not enought space on the
disk, but it skips package selection and situation repeats.

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
I choosed czech language and Workstation install on my 1GB disc. When screen
with number of packages to install, estimated time was shown, progressbar with
some text like "Loading image" appeared. After a while I got message I do not
have enough room (installer divided my hdd automatically to /boot (about 20MB),
/home (400MB) and rest). Estimated size of (automatically choosen by installer
when I chose "Workstation") packages was about 1.6G, my free space was about
600M. There was a hint to deselect some packages.
When I pressed OK, installer formatted disc and the same screen with number of
packages... appeared again.

Expected Results:  Installer should display "select packages" screen so I would
remove some packages I wouldn't like to install
