It is hard, and it has nothing to do with the installer being text based
(Redhat installer was still more or less text based when I moved to Debian).
Some of the wordings are weird or more frightning than necessary (if I
remember correctly, the choice of modules come with a warning about your
system might get damaged if you pick the wrong moduel... with no help with
which module your hardware might need). dselect is a piece of crap when it
comes to userfriendliness.

To a Linuxnewbie, isn't it better to be a good Linux advocate?
