Fedora Core 5 Install Option

The previous redhats have the option to allow you to install ALL package at once (INSTALL ALL TICK BOX or something). For Fedora Core 5, you have to individually select each (of hundreds of individual package) ticks if you want to install the full package.

Am I missing something? Is there realy a INSTALL ALL option?

Try to look at the end of the list, you should have a "Everything" checkbox. If not, try running the install in text mode by typing "linux text" at the boot prompt. The graphic version could be missing this information.

   On the package installation defaults page select the general groups of software you would like to install by ticking their respective check boxes. You will have an opportunity (now or later) for further customization of the software packages to be installed by selecting the radio button for "Customize later" or "Customize now". If you choose "Customize later" you will have an opportunity to customize your software package selections after your initial installation. Click "Next".

    If you selected "Customize now"  a dialog page appears in which you may select software groups, sub-groups, and individual packages by checking appropriate boxes. Be sure to click the "Optional packages" button for each group to view the individual package selection detail pages. You may now select all the software for your installation.
    You can select ALL PACAGES in any group by right clicking on that group and selecting "Select all optional packages"

I believe my answer was what astrodock was searching, and I answered it sooner (not 3 months after).

@ Myrandor
Regarding accuracy: your answer "...you SHOULD have a "Everything" checkbox. If NOT, try..." is NOT an answer
although posted in timely manner.
And this is what I was talking about: http://shots.osdir.com/slideshows/596_or/10.png ( 3 month later -true )
Anyway, let page editor decide.

sincerely
