Description of problem:
In this comment from Bugzilla
<http://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=88563#c1>, it was
made clear that:

"For certain install choices, such as Personal Desktop, we have
removed the graphical login option.   The 'Custom' install choice will
provide all these selections."

The Custom install in Fedora does *not* provide a text login option,
at least when I used the text-based version of Anaconda.

(BTW, IMHO, if one is using the text-based installer, there should
*always* be a prompt asking if one wants a text login--unless X isn't
selected at all. Using the text-based installer suggests that one may
have a reason to avoid bringing up X.)

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2004-10-05 15:38:09 UTC
anaconda no longer has any X configuration screens and this can be
done after you have installed.
