Description Maik Danstedt 2002-04-05 13:08:33 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/2.99 (3.0 rc3); Linux)

Description of problem:
I'd like to set up multiboot for all of my OS on the PC directly with anaconda.
A possibility to optionally edit the grub.conf / lilo.conf manually would be nice.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RedHat
2. Configure Bootmanager

Actual Results:  Only Windows, the Linux that will just be installed and BeOS are configured by Anaconda in RedHat Skipjack

Expected Results:  Possibility to customize bootmanager configuration more freely
alternatively option to edit grub.conf / lilo.conf maually

Manually editing configurations isn't really possible since there are lots of
things about the configuration that don't get determined until after all
packages are installed.  We are planning to enhance this screen to provide
greater flexibility, though, in future releases.

You can do more with rawhide.  Anything more is just going overboard, really...
 we need to make sure you get installed and can then boot Linux.  After that,
you can do more esoteric things if needed.
