Subject: boot-floppies: [ Choose the DNS ] dialog overhangs to the right, fouling later displays
X-Mailer: bug 3.1.5
At the [ Choose the DNS ] dialog, the menu overhangs to the right by
about 3 characters, and that piece of it (with the scroll indicator)
gets left behind and fouls the subsequent displays.
I wonder if perhaps this didn't happen on the author's test machine,
since a shorter hostname was chosen there? The hostname for the
laptop I am installing to is "journeyhawk", a fairly long name.
I suggest printing the hostname in the top part of the dialog, and
removing it from the menu items.
Where is the DNS (Domain Name Service) server for $hostname?
??? Will that thing word wrap it for you?
