Better solution should be a web page with fill-in form, then user print
the page.

That's the question. To explains the meaning of all Setup questions,
is equipotential to publish a book about Linux, because you have to
cover networking, serial port, etc.

Maybe, another solution existes: I can add a "h" to Setup prompt:

        Do you want ... (y/n/h)?

The 'h' switch can shows a lot of additional info, but I can write
all that in english.


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