Bug Description

I was installing Dapper on a PC with Windows(1 partition)+OpenSUSE(3 partitions). I wanted to install Ubuntu in the space that were occupied by OpenSUSE but I didn't want to mess with partition creation so I made the following:

1. Begin installation.
2. The partition options offered where:
a) Delete completely the hard disk.
b) Manual partitioning.
3. Selected 2.b).
4. In the partitioner, deleted all OpenSUSE partitions.
5. Applied the changes.
6. Closed the installer.
7. Opened again the installer.
8. Now the options were:
a) Delete completely the hard disk.
b) Use the extra space.
9. I selected 8.b).

The feature request would be to create a new step between 5 and 6 (5.5?) that let you use the extra space created (after deleting partitions) without closing and reopening the installation program.
