A couple of minor complaints about partman: - I installed from usb media, and partitioned the disk manually. So I was quite surprised to see my usb keychain on the list of partitionable hard drives. I don't think a user wants to format the disk he's installing from... :) - On the final question where it asks if you want to proceed with partitioning/formatting/mounting, it should probably print a summary of the changes it is about to make to the hd or, at least, a summary of the partitions it is about to wipe clean. Just to be sure a newbie doesn't delete its windows partition by mistake :) Other than that, it was flawless. Great work, people!
