Paldo has this little debian touch. When you use the RescueCD it will be installed using the net. Now here is my suggestion for an installer for it:

* Let the user decide which keyboard he want to use
* Start up a textbased partition program where the user can edit his hdd > will be saved as /upkg and fstab
* Let the user decide which branch he want use.
* Start up bootstrap + decided branch
* Other dialogs will edit the other files (/etc/hostname, /etc/domainname, /etc/hosts, passwd root)
* Start up a textdialog for grub and let the user decide where he want to install it. A standard option for hd(0,0) should be there > MBR

If I could code textual I'll do it, but I'm using IDEs to do my GUIs.

We'd like to add such an installer. It's not our top priority right now but it shouldn't be that difficult to write, so we might be able to do it in the foreseeable future.

I'll take a look into this: http://linide.sourceforge.net/0071.html

Maybe I'll come up with something ...

This installer seems to be promising:

Needs some editing.

A friend of mine wants to code a ncurses installer, but I don't reach him since 3 days. Hope he still wants to do it ...

What about modifing the grml2hd-installer?

Here's the link to get the source.

Also I found some screenshots and infos about it.

I take a look into 0.9.2 and maybe I'll come up with something.

We can also look into YaLi:

YALI (Yet Another Linux Installer) is the first Pardus software a user encounters. Basically, it recognizes the hardware and installs Pardus software from the installation media (i.e CD) to a hard disk partition user selects. It has a high performance compared to other installers and we believe that YALI is one of the fastest graphical Linux installer on earth, thanks to PiSi package management system.

YALI can handle resizing of the NTFS partitions found on the disk.
