Description Lamar Owen 2002-08-05 13:21:24 EDT
Description of Problem: 
During firstboot run, the screen 'Update Your System' starts with the line 
"Now that you have registered with Red Hat Network" -- but this page is asking 
if you want to register with Red Hat Network. 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
Limbo 2 
How Reproducible: 
Every installation's firstboot. 
Steps to Reproduce: 
1. Install system. 
2. Firstboot. 
Actual Results: 
Confusing text. 
Expected Results: 
Maybe a text saying 'In order to help you keep up to date on the latest Red 
Hat packages, you can.....  Registering with Red Hat Network enables you to 
receive these updates.'  Then the radio buttons.

Comment 1 Brent Fox 2002-08-06 14:11:31 EDT
Yes, I have changed this text so that it makes sense now.  Originally,
rhn_register and up2date were two separate programs and required two separate
steps in firstboot.  Now they have been combined into one program so we only
need one step.  That happened at the last minute before the beta, so the text on
the screen was from the second step.  

The current text might not be the final text, but at least it makes sense now. 
Thanks for your report.
