Description of problem:
I would love to see an option that would let anaconda install
packages from source on a customised kernel.
I would love to see it being possible to configure a kernel the way I
would like to have it, save it on a seperate small partition, usb
stick or floppy drive and then install fedora using that kernel.
Perhaps it would then also be possible to make anaconda use custom
drivers like the proper nVidia drivers from thesame
I have no idea how much work this would be since I'm not much of a
programmer, just a little bit more then a regular pc user.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.install a distro equipped with anaconda
anaconda already has support for driver disks for storage and network
drivers that are needed for during the install. Adding a build
environment isn't practical, though, due to the space considerations.
Anaconda will get your system installed and then you can do whatever
