Default Question - proposing patches for improvements.

Hi guys,

I have a question regarding process for new features for anaconda/kickstart.

As part of getting a kickstart installation through USB stick via
UNetBootin I was found forced to modify anaconda "harddrive" command.

This was due to:
- "harddrive" not working if given via "%include <file>", with file
generated by %pre.

- To ease shell scripting needed in %pre (if it would work).

Through a simple patch, I have it looking like "harddrive
--partition=any --dir=/".
With this, loader will search for the first partition containing
.discinfo, much like cdinstall.c.

Would this patch be useful?,
I would contribute documentation as well. (kickstart install with
UNetbootin and for the change)

Thank you,
Adrian Cruceru
