Description Kevin Verma 2007-03-02 18:06:56 UTC
Description of problem: This is order to enable users have a Fedora installation, which is targeted for a non expert users. This is basically to suggest that anaconda let users choose a mode for example called "I am my own admin" Such mode more basically either modifies Pam & sudo configurations or installs different set of Pam & sudo packages to - - let the user accounts created there after user system-config-*tools after supplying their own password. Also one default user account account created under such mode, unless a new user account is possible to be opted by user as non-privileged account. I have been thinking of the same idea, but recently this got more inspired for me after using Nokia N800 device for a while, perhaps Linspire does something similar but I have no experience or knowledge of the same. - I assume there might be possible administration limitations for users after install and also some security risks for users own data & home directory.

Having this in anaconda is the wrong place. Conceivably, you could do something like this with a firstboot screen or in system-config-users, but it's not something that we're really interested in making anaconda do.
