Custom layout?  What is so custom about /home being on a separae LV so 
you don't have to recreate it each time?  Even not asking it to be 
mounted and just adding / and /boot results in 727966.

As for more details, the bzs stand on their own with all of the details 
already in them.  No developer/maintainer has asked for more details in 
them.

I can install using one of the desktop spins, but it seems to me that if 
the DVD won't install during alpha, then there has been a serious 
regression that should be addressed early.  Addressing software bugs 
late in the development process usually leads to more delays and higher 
costs.

Just my 2c, I'll be quiet now and go back to my coloring book.  :-)
