Sysinstall may appear intimidating > but it's really quite easy to use once you're used to it. i don't understand WHY something has to be better just because it's working in graphics mode. it doesn't make sense. IMHO numbers and letters look the same in the scary dark place, a TUI, or GUI. Better device detection, faster, more packages, etc. would all be "better" and should be more of a priority than making a GUI installer. I'm a function before form person, so pretty GUI's don't really impress me much. Make it detect my hardware CORRECTLY and install the right stuff fairly quickly and I'm happy! <font size="1"> <div style='border:none;border-bottom:double windowtext 2.25pt;padding:0in 0in 1.0pt 0in'> </div> "This email is intended to be reviewed by only the intended recipient and may contain information that is privileged and/or confidential.
