The install went relatively smoothly, except grub seems to want to boot from hd2,0 instead of hd0,0 don’t know why I didn’t put 2,0 in anywhere but it seems to want to boot from there. The other issue is that I want to install my root on a sw raid5 md device, 3 scsi drives, but the installer didn’t allow me to choose raid5 only 0,1. The last problem I have is that I have my disks w/ persistent superblocks from another dist I had installed (suse9.0) and for some reason this kernel is not auto-mounting them. I’m playing w/ mdadm to get them all mounted up right now. Scary though because I have data on one of the drive sets (170gb of data J). Other than that it was pretty smooth and worked out well. Keep up the great work!

Looks like your bug is fixed in current installer. Would be good if
you could see if it still reproducable and reopen the bug in case.

Thanks in advance,

p.s.: You can get a new installer image in
