<br><br>Huh?</blockquote><div><br>The After screen will indicate what setup is going to do, the before screen indicates what was there before.&nbsp; It gives users a better indication on what will be done.&nbsp; If they load a previously created setup file, it is not obvious if the creator of the setup file included partitioning information or if they have to set it up themselves.

&gt; Also a load make.conf button might be helpful at least for people who<br>&gt; already have a make.conf file.<br><br>And where would this make.conf file be if they're booted from a livecd and don't<br>have anything mounted by default?

<br>&gt; way.&nbsp;&nbsp;Perhaps put the hostname / domain name fields above the device list?<br><br>This probably won't happen. Eventually, there will end up being more options on<br>the second tab, so it can't really be eliminated.
</blockquote><div><br><br>Oh, well thought I'd mention it.<br></div><br><blockquote class="gmail_quote" style="border-left: 1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204); margin: 0pt 0pt 0pt 0.8ex; padding-left: 1ex;">&gt; Add option &quot;none&quot; to system logger.
<br><br>Nope. The install guide doesn't say that a logger is optional, so that option<br>will not be in the GTK frontend. While I know that it isn't necessary, we're<br>trying to stick to the install guide as much as possible. Although, it may be
<br>supported in the backend.</blockquote><div><br>Seems logical. <br></div><br><blockquote class="gmail_quote" style="border-left: 1px solid rgb(204, 204, 204); margin: 0pt 0pt 0pt 0.8ex; padding-left: 1ex;">&gt; These are just suggestions :).&nbsp;&nbsp;Keep up the good work!&nbsp;&nbsp;Thanks.
