Installation Selection

For now I'm picking the "Personal Desktop" option. What it leaves out I'll install at a later date.

First try "automatic" disk partioning, see what we get.

Hmm. The obvious option here is to "Remove All Partitions on the system."

Remove All Data. Yikes

Installing Grub Boot Loader

Make the Ethernet card available at boot-time, using DHCP

Enable Firewall. Not allowing SSH, web service (HTTP(S)), FTP, or mail (SMTP)

The default is to enable SELinux. I may regret this later, but for now let's go with it.

Default to US English, Eastern US Time zone, and put the system clock on UTC
