Description Warren Togami 2003-01-15 12:05:45 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20021218 Description of problem: I know we've been through this several times in prior betas, but please consider changing the "DOS" boot label to anything else. "DOS" in the majority of instances is not true of most systems. It is confusing and misleading especially to today's users, many of whom have never seen DOS or know of the history leading into Windows. In the past the objection to renaming was that "Windows" was Microsoft's trademark. During the last beta (Bug 71565) someone suggested "Win32" as a generic name, however upon search at http://www.uspto.gov it appears that Microsoft owns that trademark too. Also it couldn't be changed because documentation for Red Hat 8.0 was already printed by that time. I do not have a good suggestion for a new name, but please take this into consideration.

The user is free to change the label. We do no checking to identify the OS on the partition. We just know its a DOS like filesystem.
