Install Linux. Remove video card insert one that needs
a different server. Reboot. Kuzdu spots the card change.
Accept the change, fail to find the CD. Hit cancel.

Is this one fixed in 7.0beta - should I go and test it ?
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2001-03-07 14:38:37 EST
Should be fixed in 0.97.5-1; if the X configuration fails
(Xconfigurator exits non-zero), the initscript will switch to
runlevel 3.
