Description of problem:
There's a small typo in the technical description of the 'check for bad blocks'
There's a sentence that goes like this:
"If you choose to check for bad blocks, you can monitor your progress on
virtual console #6."
But, when I look at the virtual console documentation on page 28, virtual
console #6 is CTRL-ALT-F6. Pressing this key in combination during this part
of installation only shows a black screen.
However, pressing CTRL-ALT-F5 _does_ show the progress of the bad block
So the text should read :
If you choose to check for bad blocks, you can monitor your progress on
virtual console #5."
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Look in printed manual for this technical typo.
2. Look in online manual for this technical typo.
3. Observe that there's an error.
Actual Results: CTRL-ALT-F6 gives me a black blank screen, whereas
CTRL-ALT-F5 gives me the progress status as advertised.
Expected Results: ..See call description..
