I second that! I'd prefer it the way 'dselect' already is working on the
console and in an xterm under X11. A GUI oriented installation tool is a
waste of CPU time, memory, disk space and man power (regarding it's
development) and would probably have no more functionality than good
looks. It's one of the few downs on the part of RedHat to have an X11
installation tool, providing only the command line RPM for the console.
This was one of the negative reasons not to choose RedHat BTW. Although
the present 'dselect' is not cause for joy either...
