It depends on what you tell it to do.  It does all the basic setup of
a system (partition tables, keyboard type, etc) and puts a base system
on the partition you specify.  The base system is enough to boot up,
file management, and install additional packages.



If your company is not involved in something called "ISO 9000" you
probably have no idea what it is.  If your company _is_ involved in ISO
9000 then you definitely have no idea what it is.
