Description Michal Jaegermann 2002-08-24 18:34:00 EDT
Description of Problem:

On "Congratulations" screen one is confronted with the following text:

"If you created a boot diskette to boot the system, insert it before

This wording seems to suggest that if an advice to create a boot floppy
was followed then booting from a hard disk is no longer an option.
Actually it is not clear to me what was the goal here.  A test for that
floppy or an information how to boot if this is the only boot device?

This text could use some refinement I agree.

MSF - 

Please update the text for this screen to read as:

If you created a boot diskette during this installation as your primary means of
booting Red Hat Linux, insert it before rebooting your newly installed system.

I'm going through Bugzilla closing some bugs that have been marked as Modified
for some period of time.  I believe that most of these issues have been fixed,
so I'm resolving these bugs as Rawhide.  If the bug you are seeing still exists,
please reopen this report and mark it as Reopened.
