You misunderstand. I'm not asking why I should reinstall, but why use
the LiveCD instead of the DVD. I'd always rather take a few minutes to
customize my install ahead of time because it saves hours of downloading
and installing things later. And, as I already have a separate /home,
I'd need a kickstart file to make it start UserIDs at 500 instead of
1000. Nuke, pave, reinstall may be better than fixing, but for somebody
like me, it's not the simplest thing in the world.
