Comments/Problems:

I had some issues with getting software raid to work at first, but after a bit of playing i got it all working. If there's some good documentation provided for this it should be ok. Also there should be a note that lilo has to be installed on the RAID devices and on the actual disks itself. Took me several tries of entering sda/sdb and it's partitions to figure that out.
Also, the kernel module detection detects too much modules, and a few of them fail to load. Those modules appear to be general modules (i have no exact names of them), and everything worked well without them loaded though.
Good job on this installer! It's really a good thing :)

Basic instructions for installing with RAID and LVM are in the 
installation manual. These could probably be elaborated a bit.

Bootloader will only be installed on one of the disks by the installation 
system. Automatic detection of correct options does not yet work in all 
situations. Improvements in this area are on the TODO list.

This is not really a bug but a feature.

Thanks.

Closing your report as the installation was successful and there were no 
real issues. Thanks for submitting the report,

Cheers,
