Description Kevin Verma 2007-03-02 13:06:56 EST
Description of problem:
This is order to enable users have a Fedora installation, which is targeted for
a non expert users. 

This is basically to suggest that anaconda let users choose a mode for example
called "I am my own admin" 

Such mode more basically either modifies Pam & sudo configurations or installs
different set of Pam & sudo packages to - 

- let the user accounts created there after user system-config-*tools after
supplying their own password. Also one default user account account created
under such mode, unless a new user account is possible to be opted by user as
non-privileged account. 

I have been thinking of the same idea, but recently this got more inspired for
me after using Nokia N800 device for a while, perhaps Linspire does something
similar but I have no experience or knowledge of the same.  

- I assume there might be possible administration limitations for users after
install and also some security risks for users own data & home directory.

Having this in anaconda is the wrong place.  Conceivably, you could do something
like this with a firstboot screen or in system-config-users, but it's not
something that we're really interested in making anaconda do.
