1. did not use expert mode but would have liked to have been able to cancel/quit/abort the package managers like taskel and/or go back to the menu and choose another, before debian tries to install packages.

2. had a lot of problems finding a mirror that didn't error out on package requests over http through proxy. would be nice to mark the ones in the list that are "certified" by debian to be up-to-date and stable.

3. had a lot of connectivity problems with security.debian.org.

4. the locale generation dialog should state whether you MUST choose at least one locale.
