Downloaded rc1 - and the business card version.  Unfortunately my CD reader on 
this machine thinks the larger CD is corrupt (but it has been verified on 
another machine as OK).  The business card version seemed to be installing 
the base system just fine, when I looked away and it rebooted.  There is of 
course no bootable system installed at that point, so it was another 2 hours 
of doing it all again for it to happen on me again.

I'll try tomorrows CD build - but if I can't get that to work I am going to 
have to give up and not have a machine with me on holiday:-(
