> So far this is a sysinst issue.
one thing i wish sysinst did better was handle additional/missing
files/sets in the install image.
everything is pretty muc hard coded. i've always envisioned that
having some metadata file created by the build that sysinst reads
to find out what sets are available and then presents the user
with info based upon this (ie, if your iso image has no source
or X11 sets, don't offer them.) it also allows other parties to
easily add sets for installs and have sysinst deal.
but i have never really thought about implementing it :)
