Documentation on downloads, checking ISO images and using Bittorrent
should be better. The fact that we can do a minimal installation with a
single CD, a desktop class installation in 2 CD's or a network
installation with boot.iso image is far from clear to everyone involved.
It has been offered for years and people continue to request it as a new
feature not being aware that it exists already in just about every
release. Kickstart should be much better advertised.
