Have you ever used the older Solaris installer (say around 2.5 or
2.6ish)?  I still think it's the best installer I've used.

The model that follows is:

	system identification
	set/package/software selection
	disk layout

and I think what David has done so far is on the right track.  Being
able to say (in the future) that your root filesystem needs to be at
least N MB before choosing the disk layout seems to make a lot of sense
to me.
