Description daniel.deimert 2000-10-01 06:45:40 EDT
When installing with the graphical installer, it is impossible to select
the mouse type using the keyboard.  The installer autodetected a Generic 
PS/2 mouse, and because this did not work I wanted to select a Microsoft
Intellimouse. But there was no way to expand the "[+] Microsoft" mouse list

It would be nice if everything in the installer could be done with the
keyboard, including things like the time zone.

Brent please verify immediately.

	After some experimentation, you can expand the list by pressing the "+" key on
the keyboard (the one by the Backspace key).  The one on the num keypad won't
work.  Pressing the "-" key will collapse the branch of the tree.  So, although
selecting the mouse with the keyboard *is* technically possible, it's not very
intuitive.  Seems like the space bar would be a logical choice for expanding and
collapsing the tree branch.  Thanks for your bug report.  I'm putting this on
our list of future enhancements.
