Description Bryce Nesbitt 1999-06-03 21:15:55 UTC
The installer has pre-canned configurations for a "server"
and a "workstation". But lots of people want dual-boot
machines, and once you abandon the standard pre-canned
configurations you're in for a lot more work.

Suggestion: Add dual boot standard configurations.  Check
the URL for more reasons this is a good idea:

The reporter says "My adventures with Red Hat 6.0 were even
more unpleasant."
