My bad, I must have resized it accidentally while working on the UI before. I've set it back
to 800x600 now, please let me know if it works properly in the next ISO.

Good thinking, I'll see about relabling that. BTW, how is your system layed out? How many installs?

The logs are stored during the install in /tmp/.pc-sysinstall/pc-sysinstall.log, which is in memory, and
lost when you reboot. Would you like me to copy these logs to disk postinstall?

Yea, we use static device numbering now, to keep more in line with FreeBSD.
