    Yes but that Ok and Cancel will work only for the install but what about using
    the distro later on. It will have no Ok or Cancel. If you mean ease of install then it
    works out fine but logic of Ok and Cancel does not.

    Yes I exactly agree.

    Exactly but I never  said that the installer should not be there and its useless.

    I know but how does install.exe fit out here. If you mean that these people do not 
    know to install a GNU/Linux distro then let me remind you in most of these
    organisations they a person using a computer does not install it on his system
    himself there are SysAdmins for the job and if a SysAdmin only knows how to
    install Windows its goodbye time for him.
    See I am not saying that install.exe is useless what I meant in my earlier mail was
    install.exe is not the only option for people in the test cases.
    Here in the example you gave you have diverged from the topic of install.exe and
    how it fits in.

>Use case, first look at them and you will come to know.

    I did look at the test cases and that is why I have doubts.

>Boy think before you write.

   I had mentioned ShipIt in a lighter tone. Please get the humour.
