Description Chris Ricker 2003-03-31 14:29:54 UTC
<feature to add if bored ;-) >

I normally do network installs, but wound up having to do a fresh install of RHL
9 from cd yesterday. One thing I noticed was that when the first CD finishes,
it's ejected and a prompt for the second CD is displayed. When the second CD is
inserted, you then have to click okay before the install proceeds.

It might be a little more user-friendly if the second CD is automatically
detected (ie, you stick it in and it just goes, w/o having to click okay).

There's actually even code floating around to do this, albeit for a much older
version of anaconda. Sun Linux 5.0 (now defunct "perl -pi -e 's/Red Hat/Sun/g'
anaconda" fork of RHL 7.2 ;-) does the automount of subsequent CDs....
