Make storage failures non-fatal

Feature state

openSUSE-11.1
Rejected Information
openSUSE-11.2
Rejected Information
openSUSE-11.3
Done

Description

Currently all storage failures (during step "Prepare
Harddisk") are fatal. E.g. if a partition cannot be mounted the installation
is aborted.

Some failures do not really harm, e.g. if mounting of a Windows partition
fails that is not used for the installation. For other failures an really
experienced user might fix the problem manually on the console.

So for all failures the user should be asked whether the installation should
continue.

Please reject for SLE11/11.1. All resources allocated with mandatory features already.

When installng openSUSE on a latop with a hybernated Windows parition, the current behavior will hard-stop the install. In some instances, if there was a prior openSUSE install, the boot files may have already been scrubbed when the mount-failure occurs that hard-stops the install. In this case, the laptop will become unbootable. The only way around it is to complete the openSUSE install, and explicitly remove the Windows parititions from fstab as part of the disk-parititioning dialog. That way the Windows partitions are not mounted during installation and won't throw an error.
