it is not bizarre ... (but if you read it, you will realize that the reference
to anaconda is pro forma as a means of installation, with its summary of
installation options only, and so you have to come back to Fedora Installation
Guide to understand the whole installation procedure).
Well, the "etc" meant that one has to read the Fedora Installation Guide to
learn more, that is:
Paragraphs 4.7 -> 6.2 -> 7.5 -> 7.6 .
It is not that bad ... the second reading will get you there !
