Comment 1 Brent Fox 2001-10-05 16:07:35 UTC
Yes, this was intentional.  After having done the installation, it is better to
use redhat-config-users to add, modify, and remove users.

Comment 2 John A. Hull 2001-10-05 16:28:43 UTC
If that's the case, then just removing the screen altogether might be the best 

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2001-10-05 16:49:10 UTC
If you are talking about the graphical installer, we felt that it was important
to allow the root password to be changed.  Since that is on the same screen,
skipping the screen would prevent that.  The text mode installer has the root
password and user accounts on separate screens, so perhaps that would be
possible there.

Comment 4 John A. Hull 2001-10-05 18:04:48 UTC
Yes, I was referring to the text version of anaconda. At Dell, our factory-
install of RHL 7.2 kicks the users into the text anaconda --reconfig on first 
system boot to configure their language, keyboard type, etc. right away so that 
we don't have to try to guess what they're going to use. So the customer is 
going to get a screen automatically that they can't use. No big deal, but it's 
better just not to have the screen show up at all.

Comment 5 Michael Fulbright 2001-10-11 15:07:31 UTC
We are leaning towards replacing reconfig mode with a 'first boot' harness to
allow more flexible customization of the first boot environment. We're going to
remove reconfig from the installer when the replacement is ready.

Comment 6 Brent Fox 2002-01-20 19:22:04 UTC
Yes, this will be fixed by firstboot.  Marking as 'wontfix' for anaconda, but
this will be fixed by a different program.
