I already answered to this email, but maybe it do not reached the list.
I this my emails I was suggesting to add the symbol "&" after the command

                setup -a custom > /var/tmp/boot.log &

in /etc/rc.5.

In this way, setup is done in background. The problem is: what happen
the very first time? In this case the same comand "setup -a custom" need
of user interaction. In UMSDOS this work.

Sorry: I do not like this solution.


I'd like to conclude with a positive statement, but I can't 
remember any. Would two negative ones do?       -- Woody Allen
