That was happening to me for a while as well. On new window openings. But it dosen't happen any more (grin) no idea why.
It might have been a cookie thing with the two sites. Has LXF still got a mutiple personality thing happening, i haven't checked lately
'bout as much help as some installers
As it is, it presumes prior knowledge of the workings of the bootloader on the part of the user.
Yep, thats it. Assuuumes. All they need to do is probe for the existing state. Then tell the user that they already have a bootstrap installed, and if another other OS type is detected (via fs type) in their table, then they may configure the current install from there. Still, there are holes there. A lot of people won't know if they can or not. Especially if the other fs is detected as a windows type. Which won't like the idea of providing for the boot of another system (grin)
But, it must be better to just default a boot-floppy creation, then have a clearly marked facility in the install to handle the loader configuration later.
Better installer docs must be the way to go.
