HowTo get the firstboot screen again in Fedora/RedHat

The first time the system boots, the /sbin/init program calls the /etc/rc.d/init.d/firstboot script, which in turn launches the Setup Agent. This application allows the user to install the latest updates as well as additional applications.

The /etc/sysconfig/firstboot file tells the Setup Agent application not to run on subsequent reboots. To run it the next time the system boots, remove /etc/sysconfig/firstboot and execute

chkconfig –level 5 firstboot on.
