Bug Description

If I manually partition my system to use JFS, the installer will crash.

I am pretty sure this has been happening in LM since version 5, and I am pretty sure this happens in Ubuntu as well. Not sure how much effort is worth investigating all the previous versions.

I just now reproduced this on LM13 after first upgrading all the level 1 packages, one of which was the mint-installer.
Just noticed that if I restart the installer, I am warned about some problem. If I select to ignore the problem, the installer resumes and _never_ asks about what partitioning scheme I want to use for my system.
