Comments/Problems:

I reported bug 237418 yesterday, but I used the beta2 version of the installer which is obviously backlevelled.
I shall see if I can close 237418 because what it says don't matter.

This version steps through everything nicely.
Problem occurred in "Partition hard drives". I don't want to partition anything.
Should that be an option?

Anyway he doesn't like that you don't do that.

After that you must manually step to create file systems, which I did on hdb part 13 as root.

After that the install of the kernel fails because mkinitrd cannot determine root device
which I thought I saw also in some of the reports.

Very nice tool, nice logo, much improved since last beta.
