The bootselector editor automatically sets up a default label for
all those partitions that are not marked unused. This is done to avoid
another problem that used to occur when the bootselector editor was
not used to set up such labels. The problem that now exists is there
is no way to deselect the partition from being included in the
bootselector options list.
rm -rf distrib/utils/sysinst
Adding a menu item to the bootselector editor menu that allowed
particular partitions to be removed from the options that will appear
at boot time would be sufficient.
