I was really impressed how smooth the installation was, you did a great job
with the new installer, this was my fist ppc installation ever and I got 
through the procedure without any problems, even the MacOSX is able too boot.
The autopartioning was also very good and did everything without a problem.

Thank you for the really good work.

The only things currenty not working are the sound and the airport extreme, but
they are currently not supportet, but thats not your fault :).

Thank you again, I'm still very impressed.
