Objective

We want to replace the 1st stage textmode setup (usetup) by a 1st stage GUI setup. So we can join bootcd and livecd to one cd, which provides functionality of livecd as well as setup-cd. The modes selected in freeloader should be:

  • LiveCD (booting a Live-System without touching any hard disk)
  • GUI-Setup (booting a GUI similiar to LiveCD for the first stage of setup, usetup replacement)
  • Text-Setup (booting the old textmode setup, temporary)

(Later LiveCD and GUI-Setup mode might be combined to one entry.)
