Description Mike MacCana 2002-07-06 06:55:35 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3; Linux)

Description of problem:
After the syslinux menu, kernel and media check, the Red Hat installation pauses for a long time with the message `Starting Anaconda, please wait'. This is a very minor usability issue, but most users unfamiliar with Red Hat code names aren't exactly sure what's going on and why they are waiting.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Red Hat Linux 7.3
2.Choose to install the system. Finish / bypass the media check
3.Wait for the system to start to installer

Actual Results:  A message saying `starting anaconda - please  wait'

Expected Results:  A message that meant something to users unfamiliar with Red Hat codenames. perhaps `Starting Red Hat Installer, please wait...'
