I think that the whole ppp configurator has to be
rewritten. We are going to start doing it after 4 weeks.
I will be (at least partly) based on kppp.

Is this the problem with rh install installing rpms in
alphabetical order?

We will also solve this by making a new installer. There
will be differend sets of rpms: pre-install, install and
post-install. Post-install rpms will be language dependent.

The installer will be ready for testing within 2 months.
