Description Skontorp, Karl-Martin 1999-11-24 21:17:23 UTC
The "User Id"-filed for adding extra users during the installation can only
show 8 characters. This means that if you enter a 8 character user name,
the cursor will scroll to the left, and the first character disappears.

This is in the text-mode installation.

In addition, those text boxes should limit the number of characters which can be
input to 8.

Comment 2 Jay Turner 2000-02-22 18:13:59 UTC
This is fixed in the latest cut of the installer (available in beta)
