Then you must agree with me that Anaconda should enable just the
service's that are the mandatory one's and no other..
For a system functional installation...
And the user enables the rest of the services himself during first boot,
first login or when ever he chooses to do so...
If we are gonna go the way to let the system make the decision for the
user then where are we gonna draw the line on how *smart*
the system is....
Lets just go all the way!!!!...
Anaconda should then be able to install *default* installation for the
user in no more then 3 <mouse> clicks..
User inserts CD/DVD/USB/<other possible media formats> boots up AND
ends up in Anaconda <Advanced user can press and hold down or
do some glorious key combination to enter linux terminal installation
prompt where he can type *Advanced* kernel parameters.. ( askmethod text
Legal stuff accept/decline <click1> --->
User is presented with installation
System does educated guess on user preference --->
User presented with reboot < click3 >
3 mouse clicks!!! no more no less..
