Well there's good news for when you next do battle with the installer
(two weeks must be up around now). Rather than videoing what you do,
you can now easily capture the installation screens, and the log
output from the installer, and even the partitioner (though that's
extremely verbose).

In expert install, if you select network-console in the Installer
Components screen, you can ssh from another box immediately after
configuring the network. You can of course ssh multiple times, and so
have one session doing the actual installing, and another running
tail -f /var/log/syslog
