Also, people with dial-up connections sometimes have time-sensitive charges,
so may wish to wait until the cheaper rate is available.  As long as there is
an option, though, it would alert them to the fact that an update should be
done as soon as possible.

This is a very nice feature to have. Mandrake has had this for a while. Since this is an option at first boot, the user can select which updates to install. Also, if security updates are highlighted, dialup users can install those immediately instead of installing the entire set of updates.

Just my 2 cents ..
