Default Make it more clear what the purpose of the "Boot" column is (#584811).

Up to now, I also thought the radio buttons of the boot column would
determine, where autopartitioning (but not custom partitioning) would
put /boot on. With your hint to the F12 screenshot in bug 584811, I
started to remember where the radio buttons come from.

AFAIK, the zipl bootloader on s390x always installs its boot record onto
the disk, that contains /boot (either separately or as part of the
root-fs). In contrast to grub there is no free choice of putting the
boot record even on another disk than /boot.

Does that mean, the selection here will be ignored by the zipl backend
of anaconda? That would be confusing at best. Or could anaconda choke
when the user selects one disk with the radio buttons but puts /boot on
another disk in the partitioning screen later on?

Independent of that I like the changes which certainly make it clear.
