I don't know how to say this any plainer. I *am not* asking to have ISDN support removed. I am asking to not have it in the base, minimal, installs. When I think of a minimal install, 1GB of stuff that includes dozens of packages like ISDN is not what I'm thinking about. I don't have any servers in data centers that need ISDN support. If I ever do, I know how to install the package. If someone doesn't, they can find it in the dial-up support and install that. How many servers do you have that need dial-up? Would anyone in Europe care to comment on this question? Do you have any servers that need dial-up support installed as part of a minimal install? -- Lamont Peterson <lamont lamontpeterson org [ http://lamontpeterson.org/ ] GPG Key fingerprint: C51E DD83 B03F D147 A974 939C 5D13 289C 17F1 FFBE
