I have to disagree nospam. Microsoft windows style "Wizards" are a
solution looking for a problem. They either only work for a small
subset of users by hiding all the options (see: "make a chart wizard"
in MS Excel) or they end up being page after page after page of
entering one value and pressing <next> (see" Intuit turbotax). Even
if the wizard works the first time if I want to go back and make a
change I have no idea where the setting is. So I have to go through
the entire wizard again to change one setting. This is one of the
reasons I dislike the mythbuntu control center application so much.
It feels like a Wizard. Optimizing the setup menus like Robert is
doing and implementing the location sensitive setup choice like others
have suggested in this thread will work wonders.
