This is possibly a very dumb question, but will the installer then run
after that ? I normally let the default installer run, and set up stuff the
way I like it after install. Mandrake 7.x and 8.x install pretty smoothly
on the same laptop when left alone to a default install.
I've never mucked with installers before, which is why I ask.
