Description of problem:

Text-mode installation doesn't offer choice of video components or to
build a boot disk. My setup required the use of the NT boot loader
from the MBR of the primary HD and an installation of FC1 on a
secondary drive.

After I installed I found I needed to use anaconda linux rescue mode
to build a boot disk in order to then add the XF86Config file and
change /etc/inittab to runlevel 5 (anaconda leaves the runlevel at
three when it finishes).

Also, "firstboot" is not run after rebooting normally for the first
time after the above is done.

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

Bootdisks don't fit.  firstboot will only run if your first boot is
graphical and not text mode (fc2 will add a text mode firstboot)
