has a nonochrome display.

nameserver and gateway so I just have to guess).

1.Choose yourself a computer with a monochrome display
2.try to install. I'm using the netboot disk to boot.

Actual Results:  As I said. I can't read some important information on the

Expected Results:  I expect to be able to read all the information.

We don't have a monochrome monitor in our test lab, so I can't reproduce the
behavior that you are seeing.  Even so, I think that fixing this would require
changes to newt, which is the toolkit that we use to draw the menus and such on
the screen.  Making changes to newt (which is not easy) just to support
monochrome monitors is not something we have time to do.
