Description of problem:
I'm trying to install F19-beta. There is a warning message on the bottom of the screen saying "Please complete items marked with this icon before continuing to the next step". But I don't see anywhere `this' icon (ok, there is picture of exclamation mark)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda --version returned:
anaconda 19.30-1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Picked up timezone

Actual results:
see attached screenshot

Expected results:
1. Using words like "this" is not good. It is misleading and useless. Use rather "...complete items marked with XYZ icon...".
2. Show what is needed directly. Users don't want to search for icons on the screen. So rather say "You have to do XYZ to continue".
3. If you really want to show that generic text then really mark anything with "this" (exclamation) icon.

ok, the problem is in the storage-installation destination. I had to click around there (I'm not sure what was needed). Maybe if the text is red the user have to do something. If so, then the text on the bottom should say that.
