Have 100% reproduceable bug :)
1. create 8g vmware HDD
2. choose this hdd in install, select custom partition
3. change swap from 512 to 256
4. change size of root partition, to acquire this free 256 mb
5. run install

new hdd didn't newfsed nor mounted; and install failed.

BTW, I'd prefer if swap will be optional, on netbooks every half-gig 
could be valuable :)
