Doug obviously hasn't tried out many distributions... Yggdrasil has
done this for at *least* a year and a half, perhaps more. Red Hat
also gives this option. So do a few of the smaller ones. I haven't
tried TAMU, but I heard that it also had this option. I think that
SoftCraft also does the same thing, although I haven't tried installing
It's certainly possible to do. But I'm not volunteering.
