I hope it isn't like the 1.3 i386 install, which I had an unfortunate
encounter with the other week. I'm not gonna pull a sokolov and complain
without specifying what I'm complaining about, so here are the complaints:

a) Tricky to install on multiple disks (my / disk was 80, the /usr 200,
but the install program is geared toward a one-disk-multiple-partitions
install as far as I could tell. I did finally succeed, but took alot
longer than it should've

b) Default behaviour for any error was to start over from the beginning

c) Problems with FTP install. It also didn't produce any error messages to
help debug the problem IIRC.

If these things were fixed, however, it would be a great install process.
