iirc the freebsd install process asks this question, and so does sunos.
from a "family computer" marketing perspective it would seem like a
win to have a way to set up logins for multiple users at the end of the
regardless, i agree, it's always seemed lacking to me that redhat's
install process lacks a user creation section. people should rarely
log in as root.
also on machines and cpu's that have the "umph" for it, putting some more
tasks in the background would be nice. why can't the install process run
mkfs while i'm picking packages? or install packages while i configure
printing, users, networking, etc.? i suppose error handling is a bit
more difficult, and it's more work in general but it would be nifty.
and of course the code is there if anyone's into python (or whatever it
is they build the installer out of).
