I actually believe that we should take care that the configuration for cd's 
(with the special configuration and privileges (like no login)) is not just 
taken over to hd installs. It should be ensured that users can not by mistake 
throw away their security (and only with difficulties by intent)

kernel parameter" to float around on the forums
