When installing a system with sysinst one can't step back. So if you change 
your mind or something goes wrong the only thing to do is to restart the 
installation process.

Handy would either be a step-back mechanism or a step-by-step menu choice 
that automatically selects the next step when one is done.
Install with sysinst and something goes wrong...
Make the steps selectable in a menu with auto-forwarding on success.
