Description Panic 2001-07-10 14:41:23 UTC
Description of Problem: 

Running through the TUI installation, on the BootLoader Configuration
Screen, there is the option to edit the Boot Label.  However, the default
Boot Label, "Red Hat Linux", is not acceptable to this change dialog -- the
error returned is Invalid Boot Label: Boot lable contains illegal
characters (I'm assuming this means spaces).

How Reproducible: 


Steps to Reproduce:

1. Attempt to edit the Boot Label on the Boot Loader Configuration screen
2. Try to enter in any label that has spaces in it, like the default
3. enjoy the error message

Actual Results:

Error "Boot label contains illegal characters"

Expected Results:

Additional Information:

If the default can have spaces, why can't the label that I specify have

error message to say *which* characters are invalid, but that's icing on
the cake -- I don't think anyone cares enough to bother about that.
