Re: better install experience

Hi guys,

I thought about it and want to put my two pence in the ring:
If you use linux for the first time you will probably get a live cd/dvd
first. This means there should be a simple way to install from such a cd
(is it? I just don't know).
If this way exists it seems that this is the place where to put the
ntfsresize option. So we could add the resize step to the live cd and
leave the default anaconda untouched, as normal users of the standard
dvd will probably resize their partitions before they even finish the

what do you think?
