I'm working on it. I should have something ready soon. I'm working odd
hours at my job for the holidays and have a little less spare time to
work on Indialer  then before. But most of the harder stuff is completed
and Indialer is progressing faster now.

This brings up a question Jean. The program I will supply for the
6.0 installer will basically be the 'liberator' or the configuration
portion of Indialer run separately. It is the exact same liberator the
user will see when they add additional ISP's or change settings in
Indialer. I'll just cut that part of the code out to be run separately
in the 6.0 installer. That way Indialer should be ready to run upon
reboot after the install. 

Now for the question. Will the liberator need to be compiled and
executable on it's own, or will my newt source code need to be added
and compiled into the installer? It's been a little while since I've
had a look at the installer source, but the Indialer liberator will look
and feel exactly like the installer. It should blend in very well with
things. How do you wish to proceed? I'll need to start preparing the

BTW, what do you think, 'Indialer' or 'Indyaler'?

What do you think about adding a liberator to add a user account
during the install? As far as I can remember, after the install and
you reboot you must login as root and then you must manually add a new
user. I think that was one of the differences in the Mandrake 6.0
installer. Adding a user other then root during the install.
