That would enable powerful customization of the process while leaving the execution unattended (no pauses). However it doesn't fill the need for optional pausing between steps, because not everything can be done in a script. In particular, a user might want to look at what the installer's done and act on it. -- Dan Armak Gentoo Linux developer (KDE) Matan, Israel Public GPG key: Fingerprint: DD70 DBF9 E3D4 6CB9 2FDD 0069 508D 9143 8D5F 8951
