      Description

      "New Node" screen: The description of the "Installation Directory" field is
      confusing:
      "Installation directory of GlassFish on local machine."

      Local machine in the context of the DAS? The node? The local desktop?

      Less confusing verbage is as follows:
      "Installation directory of GlassFish Server on the node host"

        Request Joe to clarify and provide the help text.

        I am in the process of modifying the node creation page, to support create-node-config, and better
        user experience. Stay tuned.

        jclingan's suggest is good. How about:

        "Base installation directory of GlassFish Server on the node host. For example:
        /export/glassfish3"

        I think it is good to give a "for example" since there is always confusion
        concerning /export/glassfish3 versus /export/glassfish3/glassfish.
