As written in the forum I do not see the necessity - it is already there. In a
way it is the same as with Suse, just divided into 3 separate screens.

1. screen in installation lets you choose between standard KDE or Gnome
installation or a "Custom" selection. This is the first step - the word
"Custom" should be understandable (as with the translations).

2. (if you select "Custom") gives you a selection by groups (Internet,
Multimedia, etc.). The link at the bottom says "Individual package selection"
is as clear and understandable as the "Custom" link in the previous screen.

IMHO this series of 3 separate screens caters more to the requirements of the
users. A novice user will possibly not be bothered by long lists of packages,
so he is better off with a standard selection. The experienced or curious or
adventurous user will dive into group or package selection.

But I support strongly the need for package descriptions in the "Individual
packages selection"!
