1) Overall, the installation is very smooth with very few
2) It seems that most of the kernel options have been compiled-in.
This is opposed to the previous version when users are free

3) Upon reboot, the installation no longer ask for root password

4) It seems that even though I have xbase3.2 debian files in my
directory, dselect does not allow installation of that option.
However upon reaching installation of xbase3.1, it prompts if
I'd rather install 3.2 instead. Answering yes results in a
number of changes to the configuration (i cannot catch all of
them) that resulted in a crippled x installation.
The above are just minor hiccups I have experienced. All else
I have tried worked.
