Description Pekka Savola 2000-07-15 13:53:45 UTC
Textmode install from CD-ROM uses the huge stage 2 image.
The size difference between netstg2 and stage2 is interesting: 1.3 MB vs
122 MB.

Make TUI use a smaller image.

Comment 1 Erik Troan 2000-08-04 18:20:21 UTC
For Winston, we've:

	1) Changed it not copy this image to the hard drive unless we're installing
	    from the second CD.

	2) Copy it to the partition on the CD with the most space

we should make it use a smaller image for forced text mode, but we don't want to
make the change this late in the beta cycle.

Comment 2 Erik Troan 2000-11-20 21:50:54 UTC
We've gotten very few complaints that this would resolve, and it's all perfectly
functional the way it is, so we're not going to change this.
