Description Don Dugger 2008-07-25 18:01:33 EDT
Description of problem:

Currently the installation process adds the `rhgb' parameter to the kernel boot 
command.  This is frequently unnecessary on server machines that have no need 
for a graphical interface.  It would be very nice to have an installation 
option that disables this flag at boot time.

You can install with the "text" option which

- will not install a graphical interface,
- will leave you in text mode.
