Ok, now is clear enough.

When I re-install f18 on a f18 or f17 for test it, I format some FS
(/boot, / and /var) and do not format other FS (/home and /opt)

Since the new interface partitioning anaconda is quite different (and,
IMHO, for now, less intuitive) from the previous interface, I could not
understand when the FS was formatted and when not.
