Description Tammy Fox 2001-06-27 20:46:28 UTC
The frame title currently titled Lilo Configuration
(which should be called Boot Loader Configuration)
needs to gray out the LILO options if Install
Bootloader is selected so it is clear which
are LILO options and which are Grub options,
and vice versa - the Grub options should be grayed
out if LILO is selected.

Also, Install boot loader should read
Install Grub boot loader so that it is clear
which you are choosing.

This screen is pretty bad on the whole.

Comment 2 Milan Kerslager 2001-06-30 09:24:24 UTC
Also it is impossible to select default preffered boot image by clicking on the 
apropriate line (with this image). One must select proper line and then click 
in the other dialog line above (something like 'select this as default image'). 
A little bit... non-intuitive :-)

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2001-07-02 15:12:14 UTC
Yeah...like I said, this screen needs a facelift.  Badly.

Comment 4 Michael Fulbright 2001-07-02 15:37:33 UTC
Please work on a glade mockup of a better layout. I don't want to have to change
the glue code for the screen - just try rearranging and maybe adding some text
to the screen to make it clearer.

Comment 5 Brent Fox 2001-07-05 18:15:23 UTC
I have made some minor changes that should help a little.  There's not time to
fix it properly at the moment.
