Jonathan Stone sez:
 * hi all,

[problems with RC_CONFIGURED]

 * The relevant string is in src/distrib/utils/sysinst/msg.mi.eng.
 * Which  do we collectively think is best, of
 * 	set rc_configured ...
 * 	set the variable rc_configured ..
 * 	set RC_CONFIGURED   ...
 * 	set `rc_configured' ...
 * or other options, if there's a better one. And should it be 

I'd say:

"Set the variable `rc_configured' to `true' via the line



This would leave no doubt as to its status.


Of course, we could always include a commented line:


and give instructions to decomment that line.  Or is that what we're
doing now?

Just because memory, disk and cpu speed are cheap is no excuse for
shoddy programming.
