Description dff 2006-01-17 10:23:43 EST
Text on the initial boot screen for the FC5 test 2 rescue CD says "press the
function keys below for more information on boot options" or something to that
effect.  But there is no explanation of function keys visible.  Maybe due to the
snazzy new Fedora logo graphic?
Comment 1 Chris Lumens 2006-01-17 12:00:47 EST
On my computer here, I can see the text but it is very dark grey so it might not
even appear at all on certain monitors depending on contrast settings, etc.  Is
this what you are seeing?  Does it look like there's space for a description of
the function keys?
Comment 2 dff 2006-01-17 15:43:52 EST
Wow, on second look there *is* some text there.  But it's nearly impossible to
see against the dark background.

I'm using a regular old 17" CRT monitor, nothing unusual about contrast settings
etc.  I strongly suggest tuning the color to improve visibility!
