I have a feature request for the OpenSuse 11.3 installer. I found 11.2
installer to be very confusing. What I found confusing was the partition part
and where it talks about sda1, sda2, etc. Most beginners won't even know what
these mean.
My feature request is to make the installer less confusing by first displaying
all the partitions and hard drives on a user's computer and users can select 1
or more partitions to install OpenSuse too like this:

Tick the drive/s | partitions you want to install OpenSuse on:
C: Label 20GB
D: Label 50GB
E: Label 1TB

After users have chosen the drives/partitions only then will the partition
edit/creation options be shown, and they'll only apply to the drives/partitions
a user chose before.

Reproducible: Always
