I said can be rebooted, not mandatory. We are asking Manuel for a way to 
put a decision at the beginning of the chapter for a choice, if choice a 
- chroot then display these, if choice b - reboot do these. I can work 
that in with no problems.

I think this has been one of the best discussions we have had this year, 
I hope we can have more of these in the future.
