Description Edward Kuns 2001-01-19 11:12:47 EST
One of the most frustrating things I've had happen when installing either 
betas or release loads is to go through the entire install process prior to 
package installation -- and then have something go wrong.  Especially since 
I individually select packages to install.

I know kickstart can solve this, but I'm talking about installing on just 
one machine.

Is there any way to have the installer save all your selections -- or at 
least the package selections -- before the installer starts formatting 
disks?  If one could save all these selections to a floppy and then 
recover them from floppy, it would be a beautiful thing.  :)

The previous choice screens before package selection aren't so painful to 
redo, but package selection *is* painful to redo.
