Description Jon Masters 2010-07-22 06:39:03 UTC
Description of problem:

Add "Use a Driver Update Disk" to the install-time boot menu, so that the user does not need to press tab and type "dd" explicitly. We could also do this in Fedora.

Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2010-07-22 13:51:08 UTC
We need to have a really good reason for adding options to that menu, as every one we add is going to have a doubling effect on the number of options.  We'll have to have "add a driver disk for upgrades", "add a driver disk for basic video", etc.

Comment 2 Jon Masters 2010-07-22 17:40:21 UTC
I suppose. Could we at least make it a bit more obvious than "press tab" by perhaps adding back in a help menu like we used to have?
