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
it multiCD.

I picked it from the directory tree.

I heard a voice saying me: "The source! Use the source, Luke!"
