Description Enrico Scholz 2001-08-23 11:09:31 EDT
In the bootloader-configuration screen you can move with <up>/<down> and
<tab> key to the different options.

Using the <down>-keys uses the order

"Do not install a boot loader" -> "Kernel Parameters" -> "Force use of
LBA32" -> "/dev/hda Master..."

This is unexpected because <down> moves to elements being _above_ the
selected one.

I will attach an image plotting this issue.

Yes, this problem exists.  Can't fix in the current timeframe, though. 
Deferring to a future release.
Comment 3 Brent Fox 2001-09-20 17:13:12 EDT
The behavior seems to work correctly now, although I didn't change it.  Perhaps
someone else did and forgot to close the bug report.  Anyway, it works with the
latest build.
