Description of problem:

Anaconda should include some default partition layout for different kind of

Fedora Project actually suggests to people to create a /home partition (see
doc.fp.o ). But not all people knows about this documentation or about that kind

We actually used to have these different types of installation classes - Server,
Workstation, Custom, etc. - around the FC5 timeframe.  What we discovered was
that most everyone went for a Custom install (we could tell this by looking at
the install class in exception reports) so there really wasn't much point in
offering the different classes and keeping the complicated code to manage that

Having a default /home partition is actually being tracked by bug 150670.
