Description of problem:
Defaulting to KDE as the preferred desktop should not require having to manually
configure packages.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Run install
2.Have to select manual package installation to configure KDE


Expected Results:  KDE is a very popular desktop and in my opinion easier to use
then Gnome. I would like it to be simpler to default to KDE for an install

KDE is a choice in the installer components.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2002-08-27 14:59:47 EDT
Our default desktop selection is GNOME.  The desktop shell is just that, a
shell, and confronting users with a choice between them when they're new users
is just confusing.  You can easily select to customize your selections and turn
on KDE to get KDE installed.
