Bug#368294: debian-installer: "go back" "continue" are the same if ROOT(/) not selected

Package: debian-installer
Severity: minor


After partitioning the disk and *not* selecting any of the paritions
to be root (/), the debian-installer shows a red screen to warn
about this.


The selections:

    go back
are not different, but do the same thing => return to the manual
partitioning screen


To the compliment for the debian-installer, it can be used as a
replacement of commercial tool (partiton magic e.g.). E.g when you buy
a new hard drive and just want to paritiion all as needed.

In these cases, there is no need to select root(/) partition.

The choices could be better labelled as:

  go back      (to the partitioner)
  return menu  (to the Debian installer main menu)

The current choices "go back" and "continue" are redundant and
give not enough control what to do next.
