Description of problem:
Issue: When upgrading a system running RedHat Linux 9 (Shrike), rhgb is not
installed by default.  The /etc/sysconfig/init file is modified to include
"GRAPHICAL=yes", but rhgb is not installed, and the system does not boot
graphically.

The user must manually install rhgb after the upgrade to get the graphical
bootup.  The "GRAPHICAL=yes" entry in /etc/sysconfig/init initially gave me the
impression that the necessary components were installed.

Note: Since this is one of the new features being boasted for the upcoming
release, it would be beneficial to ensure rhgb is installed so you can 'wow' the
user upon reboot.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Shrike and configure X
2. Upgrade to Severn
3. Reboot
    

Actual Results:  The /etc/sysconfig/init file is modified to include
"GRAPHICAL=yes", but rhgb is not installed, and the system does not boot
graphically.

Expected Results:  I had expected a graphical bootup after seeing it mentioned
so often during the install.  Had to manually install rhgb after the upgrade.

Additional info:

Since this is one of the new features being boasted for the upcoming release, it
would be beneficial to ensure rhgb is installed so you can 'wow' the user upon
reboot.  Especially since they likely read about this new feature during the
install.

The upgrade process should really be more considered an "update" process -- an
upgrade does not bring in all of the new features that a fresh install would
provide (although they're then available so that you can add them after you've
updated).   We only do special cased hacks for things which will lead to a
non-functional system afterwards.
