"Throughout this installation, you will be able to use your .. "
                             |-> the "," does not belong here!

Comment 1 Peter van Egdom 2002-08-04 17:18:36 EDT
There is also a typo to be found in the Anaconda help text on the
'Graphical Interface X Configuration' screen :

 "Although, the installation program probes to determine .. "
          +-> the "," does not belong here!

   (and maybe the word "probes" should be replaced by "tries")

Comment 2 Peter van Egdom 2002-08-04 17:34:05 EDT
Another typo can be found at the 'Network Configuration' screen :

  "if you system ... "
         |-> There should be a "r", followed by a space, here.

(not sure anymore if this was in Anaconda, or Anaconda-help).
Comment 3 Sandra Moore 2002-08-05 09:40:06 EDT
Thanks for the feedback.

Using "an HTML" is correct, since HTML is an acronym and you pronounce each
letter and the H begins with a vowel sound when it is pronounced.

"an boxed set" should be "an official boxed set" -- fixed in CVS for next release.

Comma has been removed from the "Throughout this installation..." phrase. --
fixed in CVS for next release.

Comma has been removed from the "Although the installation program..." phrase in
the Graphical Interface (X) configuration screen. -- fixed in CVS for next release.

"if you system ... " has been changed to "if your system" -- fixed in CVS for
next release.

Thanks again for your help in identifying these problems.

Best regards,
