I also had one of my old install scripts proposing me to choose between
16 ramdisks to install to. Quite bothering in fact. I'm not sure we
really can consider ramdisks as partitions. Also, all of them are listed,
whether they are initialized or not.

In fact, I was glad to see this "fixed" with this patch.
