In README-OVERVIEW Enrique says that 'simple tasks' like setting root's
password, creating user might be performed before first reboot.

IMHO, this is not a good thing to do. I know these are simple tasks but it
reminds me of my early RH installation where one does everything before
first reboot including selecting packages, and installing them
only to find out that unfortunately the system is unbootable because LILO is
setup wrong - either because of lack of knowledge or a hard setup which LILO
doesn't handle automatically.
I know that LILO can be set up using some boot floppy afterwards without
reinstalling, but this is impossible for a newbie to perform.

Just my opinion - IMHO as little as possible should be done before the first
