I don't see this with BRLTTY, and my display does use a serial connection.

cups: I certainly wouldn't want to be without my printer. Even at the most
simplistic level, it enables me to leave notes for others.

kudzu: Setting "SAFE=" to "yes" in "/etc/sysconfig/kudzu" works great.

firstboot is an X application so a user needn't worry about it unless he's
installing X. That being said, I do isntall X as my wife and children wouldn't
be happy were I not to do so. I must admit, though, that this is the first I've
ever heard of firstboot. This is because I let my children do my installs for
me so I've actually never done one on my own. With such a large family, I don't
have a spare computer to allocate to such experimentation.
