1. Was not able to load up pcmcia network card.
2. again when creating lvm disk pvcreate was not executed.
3. when installing on the base system the devices for the lvm was not created
in the chroot'ed environment, so the kernel was unable to install.
Other than these issues the installer has become much better, and seems alot more stable.
