DHCP Autoconfiguration failed on the first invocation. I was able to get
to work by simply invoking it again. I was able to reproduce the
consistently over the course of several runs of the installer.
<Description of the install, in prose, and any thoughts, comments
      and ideas you had during the initial install.>

Overall this is a very solid piece of software. From a purely aesthetic
standpoint, I found the disk partitioning to be a bit cumbersome. I
have been more comfortable if the installer switched into cfdisk in the
way as the old installer did. That nit-picky detail aside its a great
improvement. Great Job!
