   I like graphic installers.  Keep in mind that if it never gets installed,
it doesn't matter how good it runs.  "You never get a second chance to make
a first impression."  I vote for a nice graphic installer, but don't care
which one...  I think we should leave Windows out of it...  I think we
should look at some way to make the distrib span CD's...  I know we need to
make it possible to install without Gnome, unlike Red Hat. ;-)
