Description AldousX 2001-05-08 06:30:34 EDT
On page 10 of the RedHat Linux 7.1  x86 Installation Guide
it says "We Need Feedback!".

I think Anaconda should give the user
a  one-page summary of
all the installation parameters that have been selected
and one last chance to back out
before beginning the actual installation process,
much as most e-businesses give the customer
a summary of the items selected , the shipping options,
the shipping address, etc.
and one last chance to back out
before actualy making the purchase.

Even for an experienced Linux user, it is
nervewracking not to see the name of the root partition
conspicuously displayed on the screen while it is being overwritten.

Hi and thanks for your suggestion. I'm not sure of the technicalities behind
this as it does not really deal with the Installation Guide itself. However, I
can pass this along to the developers and let them take it into consideration.

Thanks again,

This is on the drawing board, so to speak.
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2001-07-05 18:13:10 EDT
Looks like this will have to slide further out.  There are more pressing issues
at this time.  Deferring.
Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2002-03-26 12:25:55 EST
Deferred to future release.
