RFE: Red Hat CD Roms should prompt user on bootup if they want to load from cd or not

That title sucks, basically when you install windows on a pc, you usually get a
little prompt from the cd asking you you to hit enter if you want to boot from
the cd or not.
I think it would be nice if redhat did this too, as i'm always leaving redhat
install cd's in my cdrom and end up having to restart my computer whenever i
forget to remove the cd.
What are we to do if they do not want to install? Do we just reboot?
Hmm maybe i didn't explain this clear enough. When running through the boot
sequence my pc defaults to trying to boot from a cd first. When the windows
install cd is in the drive, it prompts the user with a message asking if they
want to boot from the cd by clicking enter. If the user performs no actions
after 20 seconds or so, than the normal boot sequence continues, trying to boot
off the next available drive, in my case my hard disk.
does this make sense???
We say to hit enter to start the installation process (and default to
that), but now also have a "local" option to boot from the hard drive
if you prefer.
