Hm, this may be worth trying.  Looking at sysinst, immediately after
getting the disk label name, it tries to do the following:

	cp /etc/disktab.preinstall /etc/disktab
	cat >> /etc/disktab
	 [[ new disktab entry info here ]]

Jeff, can you try exiting sysinst and enter the following two commands:

	cp /etc/disktab.preinstall /etc/disktab
	echo "# comment" >> /etc/disktab

and see what happens?
