Things really changed from f17.  And did not change so much.  What it 
took to get into cusomizing the partitioning was really well hidden.  
Once I got there, it was the same thing (well a few addtions) of keeping 
my old partitions, telling disk druid what diretory to use (like it has 
the old ones and can't suggest them?) and click on reformating.  So I 
don't have to go through all the pain I had initially figuring out a 
partitioning scheme.
