For my own amusement, I'm writing some other wizard using dialog panels:
an Internet-Wizard is already out. I will develope a Mouse-Wizard, etc.
I will integrate the wizards in the 'welcome' script.

They are only dialog interfaces to the Setup command. In this way, they
do not suffers for Setup upgrading. I'm using the new command-mode
feature in Setup.

It is very easy to implement this kind of panel using my interface
library /etc/dialog.lib. Example: you can obtains a yes-no dialog
screen with:

                # dyesno -t "title" "question"

and so on. The return answer is gathered with the function result().
So I can write:

                case $answer" in
                -yes-) ....
                -no-) ...

Anyone can contribute with some wizard. Please look in the file "iw"
I sent on the list. Games are welcome.

you with, I don't. Would you take two negative messages? - Woody Allen
