Description of problem:
In the 'bootdiskette creation part' of Anaconda, the following text can
be read :
"The boot diskette allows you to boot your Red Hat Linux system from a
floppy diskette. A boot disk allows you to boot your system .. <snip>"
".. Insert a floppy disk .. <snip>"
"Please remove any diskettes from the floppy drive, and insert the floppy
diskette that is to contain the boot disk <snip>"
(or something similar).
Note the inconsistent usage of the word disk and diskette.
I think there should only be mention of the word "disk" and not "diskette".
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Red Hat Linux
I saw in the 'boot diskette creation' section inconsistent usage of
the words "disk" and "diskette".
Expected Results: Either "disk" or "diskette", but not both words.
("disk" sounds better than "diskette" in this case).
We'll catch these fixes next release.
This still happens in Red Hat Linux 8.0.
I've tried to address this issue.
Time tracking values updated
Seems you fixed it in Red Hat Linux release 8.0.92 (Phoebe).
