I just installed F14 on my Asus 701ee and ALL the screens I encountered
during the installation fit nicely on the 800x480 screen size.
I would like to thank the developers that decided this was worth doing.
I will note, however, that you missed the 'Create User' and 'Date and
Time' dialogs of the post installation process, they are the only ones
of the post installation process I encountered that did not fit on
800x480 and I had to 'guess' that Alt-F would move me Forward or Finish.
I will say that the changes to Disk Druid are significant and I
'studied' what keystrokes (on F14 installs on more 'regular' hardware)
to use to work with it, assuming I would not see the dialog buttons
since they got moved to the bottom of the screen. Fortunately, I did
not need this.

Of course with the small screen size, I end up pressing <cntl-N> a
lot, as I cannot see the Next button. And on some screens I just miss
some options, like getting to customize the install packages. I am
always forgetting the key combo to turn that check box on.
Is there some way to either get the ability to pan the screen around
or scroll the screen so that on Netbooks that SHOULD be a popular
install platform for Fedora, can have workable installation?
