Can we please keep this on the mailing list?

I'm not 100% sure now, but I think, in older versions, you could turn
them off after boot in firstboot, not during the installation. That's
not possible in F14 anymore at all.

We could still provide a way of skipping the user creation and setting
root password in kickstart installations. This way also vendors
preinstalling the OS for their customers could leave the user creation
for the actual users in firstboot.

My concern now is just the GUI installation. During GUI install, you
cannot disable SELinux or firewall. And I think it would be better to
have a normal user creation instead of setting root password in the GUI
screen as well.
