Installing base system using mini-20110308.iso
Am I the only one that has had this issue of the installation breaking at the base system step? If not, perhaps we should update the appropriate docs to include my experience.
Also, if the root issue is a benign warning, then why did the base system step fail with a chroot error? Seems more than a warning to me!

It's odd that it's always that package...

The installer retrieved the rest of the base packages, but encountered a chroot error when trying to install the base packages. I checked the (Mach?) console, and saw a bunch of errors stating that there was no user root.
The root user issue is just a benign warning actually.

I guess it managed to download it fine on the second attempt and could
then proceed with the rest.
