A very smooth install. I originally had 10 partitions on this drive and I needed to preserve hda1,
 and my /home & /shared directories.The partitioner had no problem reconfiguring the drive. 
The only time I had to pause and think was trying to mount the existing /home & /shared partitions.
The option to mount existing drives without formatting them isn't as clear as it was on the previous
installer. I am not sure how critical it is but there is no kernel for Centrino, Pentium M, processors.
The install was faster and everything 'just works' :)
