Creating a user account can be skipped, but only if you run the 
installation at lower priority (which would result in more questions 
being asked).

Hmm. You should be able to get back to the menu by using the <Go Back> 
button a few times. From exactly which dialog did this not work?

Doing some installs using daily built images and testing things like 
encrypted and LVM partitioning (and possibly RAID) would be excellent.
Some improvements in that area are in the pipeline and testing is very 
much welcome.

Also, running a test when a new release is being prepared of has been 
announced would be great.
