I don't understand where the difference is. The installer treats it the
same as a Linux system would. / would contain all files and directories
that are not located inside of another mounted partition. I don't see a
distinction to make? When you are selecting mountpoints, you can just
think of that as a TUI for fstab configuration.
What would you suggest to present the user differently?
