Bug Description

Had a thought while installing Jaunty that I was continually wishing I could select the partition info by clicking on the coloured bar showing all the partitions at the top of the Ubuntu Jaunty Alpha 6 installer. Currently to target one of the displayed partitions, I need to match the colour to the label (as the labels are not aligned even remotely with the coloured bars), then match the label to the list of partitions in the box below. It would be nice to be able to double click, or click on the partition to bring up the relevant information.

This would also require some kind of feedback to the user to re-assure them they can click on the partition! E.g., glow around the edges of the bar when the mouse is waved over it.
