Description of problem:
When the installer is told not to leave the text mode there could be a technical reason for it, that's why it should ask the user if he/she wants to enable graphical mode enhancements for the system being installed.
If that is not possible or accepted, anaconda running in text-mode could at least configure the boot process of the new system the same way, i.e. text-only.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
FC4 install disks
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install FC4
Actual Results: relevenat lines from /boot/grub/grub.conf:
# grub.conf generated by anaconda
Expected Results: # grub.conf generated by anaconda
This is related (but not dup) to the bug 115674.
You get a splashscreen from isolinux too -- they're hardly graphical mode.
