Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 163329
Installation Method: 'NFS image' is confusing.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:19 EST
Description of problem:
The Installation Method uses the term 'NFS image'.
What's an NFS image?
- The same thing we cann an install tree? Then why don't we say FTP image or
- ISOs on an http server? No, I'm doing an install here using a file tree.
I've been using Red Hat since 5.0, and work for the company. I'm still confused.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install from the network
Wonder what an NFS image is, and if that's the right option for using files on
your NFS server, even though they're not really images of any kind.
Within GLS, this confuses users of other operating systems (even UNIX-based OSs)
who are new to Linux.
('HTTP server' might be technically more consistant with the other options, but
web server is just as correct and more understandable, particularly for
non-English speakers or others new to the platform).
Realistically, nfsiso is more and more the preferred method instead of NFS tree
We'll look at what we can do as far as the wording here to try to make things
clearer and more consistent.
Fixed the wording on head since the F7 string freeze is coming up very soon.
