Well Steve, obviously some testing had to be done right? You wouldn't
change filesystem things without testing it, or else how would you know
if it was successful or not?
My main concern is with installer, installing from NFS shares from older
servers, say RHEL5. How will anaconda handle mounting? Will there be
odd errors that are difficult to figure out? Has this been tested in
the anaconda environment at all?
