anaconda / initial-setup / gnome-initial-setup: can we do this better?

Just to clarify things.

Anaconda currently requires root password OR user with administrator privileges (wheel group). So if you set root password in Anaconda, initial-setup will start, but can be dismissed immediately.

It might be good idea to add some explanation text to initial-setup together with the hiding feature (some configuration is hidden because it was set during the first install phase..) to avoid user confusion.
