- "set new allocation size" <= should be units, not size ??
  (this is for mb vs cylinders vs sectors)

- if i change a fs, the next one does not auto-adjust
  (It would be nice if sysinst could remember that you created b to start
   where partition a ended so that when you make a bigger, the start of b
   is adjusted and so is the one after b, etc.)

- how do you clear a mountpoint ?
  (you can make a filesystem "unused" but what about if I want to make
   a 4.2BSD partition that just has no mountpoint?)

- After all distributions are unpacked, "Hit enter to continue" and
  nothing further happens
- if left idle for too long, system freezes in sysinst (not even ctl-alt-del
  or ctl-alt-esc works)

I think these last too are related.  APM lossage possible?

Other than that, the installation is pretty damn slick!  Cool!
