Unfortunately, I have not had time to create the following patches, but 
before I forget to mention this again here are few simple enhancements 
that I would like to see, and if I get a moment I might just create 
patches for them:

	1) Anaconda needs to copy all of its logs to the hd, when its 
	   done.  There is no log of the %pre and %post output that 
	   gets copied to the disk (unless I missed this somehow).
	2) Last time I checked the logs that get generated for %post 
	   %pre scriplets get overwritten when there are multiple 
	   %post and %pre scriptlets.  These need to be in unique files.
	3) Finally, last I checked, and my memory is foggy here, it looked
   	   like certain logs (and I believe it was the %post log) was only
	   generated when you ran a serial install.  These logs can be 
	   handy even from a normal VGA log (especially if it was an
	   automated install, and the user has rebooted...but then we 
	   would need them on the hard drive (-;).

If these all seem like valid requests I will at least file a RFE bugzilla
report.

Cheers...james
