I'll rethink some of the things I did here (namely,
the fake shadow on the window, etc.). And yes, I want
to show something that needs no extra development, and
use the regular widgets (except for the need to create
a new theme). I tried maintaing the "wizard" look of
the newt d-i interface, and this can be achieved with
current widgets. I hope to make the next mockups in
glade to show how feasible they are.

I agree. I can't remember if in the newt interface,
the first back click goes to the previous question,
and only after reaching the beginning of the section
it goes to the menu (for example, "configure network"
has more than one screen). Use of an extra menu
button, then? It must be coded first though in the gui

No, it's a logo for signaling the help blue box, and
for actractiveness sake. I thought about it, and many
non-english languages may not recognize the "i" as
meaning "information", so I have to think if it is
really necessary, or how could a replacement icon be.

Thanks for commenting on them,
