Anyway I did the job so look at
includes the live session, installation, post-installation and upgrade

Please give comments and work on the post-installation testcases. If
nothing much I will import it to the ISO QA Tracker before 11th October for
RC testing.

Thanks len-dt and ailo for their comments and support:P
