Linux Easter Egg - Thanks for All the Fish!

You can only see this egg when you make a new installation of Linux.

1. Put the first CD or DVD in the drive and follow the steps for the installation. The installation should be in 2 parts: first a basic system is installed and started, secondly all your other files are being copied onto your disks.
2. Once the Linux kernel has been installed and restarted, the installation copies the next files on your disk.
3. You should now switch to console 2 (Ctrl+Alt+F2), and see a goodbye message for late Douglas Adams (HitchHikers' Guide to the Galaxy)...
4. Don't forget to (Ctrl+Alt+F7) to return to the installation console ;-)

This also works in the personal edition. Apparently it comes up early in the installation and remains there until the initial boot.
