Description Panic 2001-07-10 14:41:23 UTC
Description of Problem: 

Running through the TUI installation, on the BootLoader Configuration
Screen, there is the option to edit the Boot Label.  However, the default
Boot Label, "Red Hat Linux", is not acceptable to this change dialog -- the
error returned is Invalid Boot Label: Boot lable contains illegal
characters (I'm assuming this means spaces).
