 Finally, you will be asked if you are using a high resolution monitor. If you are not using an A2041 board, at this point always answer NO to this and to the following "X windows for a color graphics card" question. If you're running 2.1 you will be prompted about Netnews... answer appropriately (probably no). At this point configuration of the system is completed and it will finish booting to a login prompt. ​ Finally, you will be asked if you are using a high resolution monitor.
