Description of problem:
The boot disk prompt is rather silly and unnecessary when the user is
installing from CD-ROM. Red Hat installation media have included a
boot prompt to go into rescue mode for some years now; this is better
than a boot floppy in several obvious ways.
Every interaction that can be removed from the installer is one fewer
source of intimidation to non-technical users. This one should go.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Do a normal installation from CD-ROM
Additionally, if you try to create a boot diskette on FC2-test2 (nfs
installation after cdrom boot) the installer will just tell you that
there wouldn't be enough space on the floppy anyway. This part of the
interface should be removed.
As of FC2 test2, the boot disk prompt will go away.
