Re: Custom install guide

Firstly, I noticed something in the comps file : 

"Network workstation" and "Server" are there with the "--hide" flag. A
thought: we could resolve the issue Kevin raised ( that some people want
to partition manually but accept the workstation/server installs ). Maybe
we could remove the hide flag so these become available in the
"components" menu ? 

Also, I have some ideas about some possible mods to the "Workstation"
selection. I'll hack at the comps file and maybe some brave soul with
diskspace to burn can try it (-; I'll leave out the --hide flag so that
you don't need to pick the "Workstation" install ( ie just check the
"homestation" box or whatever I call it.

Yeah, I guess we drop individual package selection as a "supported"
concept , huh ? it's a bad idea, and there are better improvements we can

Oh, I see. I've had a look at it and it doesn't look so bad.

Looks like a whole swag of stuff you'd want on anything hooked up via an
ethernet (-;
