Anyone want to do an update of the install page for 50k?

http://wiki.blagblagblag.org/Installation

I set up a placeholder page that can be worked on until it's ready.

Someone please do this. :))))

Ok a silly question but how do you take screenshots during installation?

My guess is that Jebba probably used something like Xnest during the install. I've dloaded a few images and mounted them as loopback devices. The images are in there somewhere...
mount -o loop /path/to/blag.iso /mnt

Then have a look in the /mnt directory.
Am I right Jebba?

I forget what it is, but it is possible to have anaconda take a screenshot at each step of the install. IIRC it may be in RELEASE-NOTES-fc5

shift+<print>. I think it numbers and saves all images to /root/anaconder/ or somewher within /root/ Installing now over a very sloooow network somewhere.

By the way, thanks Jebba for ftp://blagblagblag.org/pub/blag/linux/50000/en/os/i386/images/diskboot.img
[code]dd if=diskboot.img of=/dev/sda[code]
Is all you need to get ready to install Blag from a USB key!! Shame I don't have wired netwok right now otherwise I's be flying....[/code]
