Installation minor troubles

Hi all,

I installed Edubuntu for the first time and - compared to Fedora and
Mandriva and even Ubuntu itself - there are a few peculiar things.

First of all, Edubuntu for some reason or the other does not see the
DHCP server that is active by means of the linksys cable adsl-router.

That strikes me as odd, especially since Ubuntu itself does see that
server and does act accordingly.

If - after the first install - I use the CD again to repeat parts of the
installation process, it DOES see the dhcp server. The moment I repeat
the complete installation again, it again fails to see the dhcp server. 

Furthermore I feel that it is not very user friendly that Edubuntu fails
to see the already installed other operating systems. It simply
overwrites an existing GRUB install with its own settings.

Just my 2 cents to the installation process.
