Description of problem: The spoke for Installation Desination displays only two standard drives at a time. This is not reasonable for (say) 4 or more drives. I have 5, and horizontal scrolling is a poor interface for choosing. Vertical scrolling is much better.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: every time (4 of 4 so far)
Steps to Reproduce:
1.boot Fedora 18-Alpha-TC3 netinst.iso (x86_64) on bare metal with 1280x1024 display, nVidia 8400 GS card (pci 10de:0404), 4 local hard drives, one local ATAPI Zip drive (empty)
2. Select default boot option (Test this media & install/upgrade Fedora)
3. Accept default Language (US English) and Installation Fate.
4. Wait for download of repo info, init of software selection, init of storage.
5. Choose spoke Installation Destination.
Actual results: Local Standard Disks displays only 2 at a time, with horizontal scrolling required.
Expected results: Something that makes it easy(ier) to peruse all drives. My favorite: At least 5 drives displayed at a time (probably up to 12 or so) in a list box of text lines, one line per drive, multiple attributes per line (in aligned columns).
This is the same root cause as your storage spoke bug. We should be displaying on the entire screen, not just crammed up in the corner like this.
