It was a easy install using unetbootin, you added a nice choice of 
software, I made a couple of notes to suggest adding ext4 for a 
filesystem choice, and all my systems are 64 bit, so a 64 bit iso would 
be nice.

Like I was saying, it was an easy install, on booting that's when things 
got bad, the installer had not made user jimmy, there was only a choice 
for root or user, I logged in as root and found user jimmy was in fact 
not made so I made user jimmy using kuser only to get errors while 
trying to login, also the installer did not setup my network card, I 
checked /etc/network and the config file looked good but running 'ifdown 
eth0 && ifup eth0" I would get no network found. Then I decided to go 
take a nap. :-)

What could I have done to have a more successful install?
