Subject: Installation scripts - a request

I am not sure whether this is the correct list for such a request but I
put it anyway.

I have had the privilege to help more than 20 people from a windows
background to install Debian Linux in the past two weeks.  We found the
debian installation procedure not very easy but workable.

A request of many of the people was that there should be more
opportunity to go back to a previous screen during the installation
scripts - especially while configuring packages like xserver-xfree86.
If a mistake was made during the installation process e.g. while
selecting packages, it is not always possible to go back and rectify the
situation.  For a newbie this is a serious problem.

      meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to
      proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of 
      the prison to them that are bound."
