So the real question is what do we 'suggest' our default install be?

1) Live CD: Can't upgrade, do package selection or specify install method.
Why can't a system that is installed from the Live CD be upgraded?
What would it take to make such an installation upgradeable?
I believe it is reasonable if the upgrade is possible, even if it
requires a separate step after initial installation from Live CD.
[Specifying install method and package selection is a natural for the
Rescue CD; see #3 below.]
Because the live cd install does an image copy and not an install. The workings behind the scenes are not the same right now in anaconda for the live cd and the normal install.

Wait - you can upgrade after you boot into the installed livecd image.
You just can't upgrade it FROM the boot live image.


Isn't that like telling people to use the method of upgrading we tell everyone is not recommended and most definitely not supported in any way?
