Description of problem:
The installer gives four install types:
1. Personal desktop
It is not clear enough that options 1-3 will allow the package list to
be customised later. (Much later actually)
To be honest, my end goal is to get rid of custom... it serves little
purpose at this point (the other install classes give you just as much
customization potential), but it's a little late to change for FC2 at
If you keep in "Custom" for now you might want to add the "select
individual packages". I am also unable to adjust the package list when
doing a custom installation of FC2t3.
It's not very intuitive that you can customize the package list for
all but a custom installation.
The way that it currently is mirrors the way that other installers
work and seems to be reasonable. Until custom dies at least :)

Can't we at least mention it? Go on!
I do not know of which other installers you speak, but the fact that
one cannot customize the package selection for *only* a "custom"
installation still strikes me as weird. (Must say I haven't checked
this for FC3t1/2 though.) This means only the "custom" installation is
not customizable wrt package selection. You call that reasonable
behaviour ;) ?
