Description R P Herrold 2007-09-13 14:47:17 EDT
Presently Anaconda emits a record of that it initially installs, and the ks.cfg
which it used.

It would be useful to extend this a tiny bit, to help an admin who is careful to
snap a backup post install of the fresh machine, at minimal space cost, by
having anaconda dump a copy of each end user provided install time dd image to
/tmp/ or such during just before the post process in an install

People seem to lose driver disks, and this would keep the images needed for
recovery around for a person taking that 'careful admin' initial post-install
backup snapshot

It then becomes possible to recover more effectively with rescue image.

yeah, probably don't want /tmp due to tmpwatch removing them after a short
while.  Stuffing them in /root doesn't seem like a horrible idea.

This will be fixed in the next build of anaconda.
