Anaconda provides a graphic installation (but it reverts to console
mode if it cannot configure X or if you ask it to). This is more
attractive for people than a console install. On the other hand the X
servers and libraries are so big they would force us to support multi
CD install. In 6.1 there were some problems in the installer so I
choose to stay with the 6.0 one. Now we ca reasonably hope they have
been ironed out.
So these are terms of the choice: stay with the console installer and
look primitive or go anaconda but we will have to hack it for making
