Unfortunately Colin is currently on honeymoon, so installer bugs 
probably won't be looked at until next week. I'm sorry that this is such 
a killer, but on the bright side at least we've found out about it 
before releasing :) For the most part, these bugs /are/ being dealt with 
at a high priority - the problem is just that other than Colin, we don't 
really have anyone who's familiar enough with the installer to debug

When there are major issues, I'll try to let the list know when we think 
they're fixed. So far we've already fixed a *lot* of laptop-related 
bugs, and Breezy is already in better shape than it was this time last 
week. I genuinely am sorry that we haven't been able to fix that bug 
yet, and I'll let you know as soon as there's some progress.
