Comment:

 Ok, so I did some checking here. When you go back to the desktop selection
 screen, it does *not* lose your disk-settings. Its when you click
 "Customize" on the disk-selection screen that it starts with the defaults
 again.

 This is intentional, since the disk setup is a "wizard" and always starts
 at the first page, I.E. basic / advanced / expert, and at that point we
 don't carry over settings, since many of them are invalid depending upon
 which mode is selected in the wizard.

 However, if you finish the wizard, the disk summary will show your
 changes, and that will not be lost when you go back to desktop selection,
 and come forward again.

 If we ever update the installer to replace the wizard with a disk dialog,
 then we will convert it to preserve settings across multiple runs of the
 dialog.
