Just a quick note, I have found that installing from the live session is
just as fast as installing from boot, while providing more options.

 - open a terminal (xterm) and run less /var/log/syslog. Press F once
   running to follow the tail (I am told tail -f doesn't work).

 - being able to kill ubiquity from a terminal if needed.

 - If you have a drive you don't want touched (including the grub sector)
   mount it by opening file manager and clicking on the drive you want
   left alone and opening a subfolder. ubuiquity will ask if you want it
   to try umounting it... say no.

 - if using wireless, it can be connected before running the installer.
   The installer will give one more option on one of the first few pages.

However, in all fairness, both ways need testing.
