install time enhancement for partitionner
NB: too late for 11.4, to be seen for next (12?) one.
when somebody have to install openSUSE, the moment he have to partition his drive is the key moment. Any error could make him lose his favorite (previous) system.
The install system makes it's best to guess the better way to do this, but unless the disk is brand new, the result is random.
For anybody not familiar with the partitionner, the two options (create partition/modify partitions) are unsignificant: that is they meaning have nothing obvious, the two of them keep the initial proposal.
We should have a third option: guided partitionning, with something like this:
* if windows install was found: ask: do you want to remove your windows install or keep it? If the answer is to remove, no problem. If the answer is to keep, an other question have to be asked: "you have to reduce the size of a windows partition". This one looks like a data partition (show some files on the partition) do you want openSUSE to use it (if yes, go to th reduce partition module).
etc. we could discuss to have a fully, optional dialog
