Install went smooth even though I was using a serial console which I
thought might need some more work. Only thing that doesn't seem to
happen automatically is to have aboot.conf configured for serial
console so that when you reboot you need to be aware of this and
manually enter aboot and append console=ttyS0,9600 to the kernel
options. Once rebooted it's easy enough to edit
/etc/aboot.conf. /etc/inittab is however already setup for serial
console which is great !

Good job on the installer !
