A friend of mine wanted to install 2.0 release and I was helping him. This =
friend of mine has installed mandrake and it is a regular evil empire user.=
 It has no experience installing some BSD, but he knows about hardware, dis=
k geometry and unix filesystem layout. Their main obstacle in the installat=
ion was the language; the sysinst program was available in four languages e=
xcept spanish, but spanish can be added in future, so it's ok.

There are two bugs that I wish to point out:

=B7 Typo at first screen: " ... some initial system configuraton ... "
=B7 Output: the files being extracted from the archives can't be seen.

All the rest in the line of installation was fine and the release was insta=
lled in the right way.

I left him busy reading the afterboot (english, too); configuring X, and I'=
ll be sending to him binary packages to get things working.
