Description Tim Burke 2006-01-20 13:39:05 UTC
doing an install of T2... anaconda gets to a screen with 3 main boxes, 2 of
which are empty, the 3rd lists the categories of packages, ie Applicaitons, Base
System, Desktop Environments, Development, Languages, Servers.  seeing this for
the first time my reaction is "huh, whats this"... then I wait a while thinking
that some of the mostly blank screen will fill in with something exciting
soon.... nothing.  Then I finally click on one of the package categories and
stuff appears in the box on the right and suddenly it makes sense whats going on

I think this screen would benefit from a clue or hint of some form. Such as
"Package Selection, select a category".
