Re: Fedora Installation vs Red Hat 9



Hello,

	Personally I don't really like the way that Debian installs, a rather
tricky interface to use. Just tried Debian 3.0 and it wasn't a great
experience and so I went back to RedHat 9. I have always like teh way
RedHat has setup its install process.

	I don't mind a core install followed by the pkgs and the connecting to
the update server too, but I think that there should be some serious
detection and installation of all network services required to contact
said update server, which I found very cryptic in Debian.
	
	But for sure the idea has merits.

	Cheers,

	Aly.
