Description Frederick Flintstone 2005-09-17 12:57:33 EDT
Description of problem:
In section 3 of the installation guide for rh e l v.4, it gives a list of about
20 things that folks are supposed to go off and research.. what type of mouse 
do i have? what's my sound card? etc. etc. 
Why not just provide a utility that goes and grabs it all and writes it to a 
file so folks don't have to know about 30 things and how to go dig for all of 
it.  At least document how to go get it.

Comment 5 Don Domingo 2008-01-25 01:15:47 EST
the section in question is the "System Requirements Table", which is recommended
to be filled up *before* installation.

closing this as NOTABUG. the methods through which a user can identify system
components pre-installation are too numerous and trivial to list (e.g. asking
your vendor, reading the box, etc), and beyond the scope of this book.
