Verne Anaconda Antisocial Behavior

I prepped an old 20 GB IDE drive with a 500 MB FreeDOS partition.
Anaconds 25 refused to use this disk unless it wiped out existing
partition table  (and FreeDOS with it).

I prepped an old 18 GB IDE drive with 500 MB of FreeDOS and loaded
Xubuntu 10.10 on the rest using manual partition.  Xubuntu cheerfully
installed alongside FreeDOS and even generated the Grub2 commands
for multiple booting.

I think Anaconda's greed will provoke a number of flames.
First the Emperor's GUI and now this.
