Hello, all

I'm slowly coming back to normal life after the move. I hope to get
another "State of the RULE" report out by the end of the month, and
resume activity. The missing ISO problem has been reported to the
sysadmins, we'll see what happens.

In the meantime, I have tried to install the latest
slinky-v0.3.97b-vumbox iso image for Red Hat 9 on a laptop. I have
noticed that:

1) It doesn't check before if there is enough disk space (installation
crashed eventually for this reason)
2) It seems to ignore package choices: I did not select sendmail and
cups the second time, yet they are being installed anyway.

Can this be fixed *during* the installation, ie patching by hand some
scripts right after boot with this same ISO? Consider that on an old
laptop you have cdrom *or* floppy, and network installs are not
possible here now...
