Sorry to use an out-of-date installer image. The 03/03/08 installer is
on my USB fob, but the machine would not boot from it (I think because I
had formatted the USB stick as a hard disk rather than as a
"superfloppy"). Thought it worth submitting this report anyway, because
of the root login issue.

The installer detected both NICs and asked me to choose one as primary.
It then configured that interface successfully, but did not offer to
configure the other NIC. It would be nice (as in wishlist) if it offered
to configure any remaining interfaces. 

At user setup I was offered the opportunity to disable root logins and
use sudo instead, and I chose to do so. I then created my userID
(chrisc) and set my password. I then installed the boot loader, finished
the install successfully and rebooted. On rebooting, user chrisc did not
exist, and user root could log in with no password!! Oops. Once I logged
in as root (and set a root password) I confirmed that user chrisc had
not been created. The sudo package had not been installed either.

Tried again using expert mode, works as advertised. No idea what went
wrong before, but seems to have been a one-off.
