Please put the option in anaconda to make Linux boot in GUI mode (This is
so easy) 

In /etc/lilo.conf insert a line vga=791
Note: 791=16-bit colour, 792=32-bit colour, ask=prompt user for mode

Reproducible: Always

Will consider for future release - we are not adding features at this point.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2002-01-21 20:00:07 EST
Code for this is in CVS and will probably be enabled for the next release
