Kris, there's something with /boot/loader has changed.
I couldn't make boot USB, as usual. Seems this 1byte difference between 
alpha2 and alpha1 loaders breaks something.
I changed it with /boot/loader from alpha1 and could succesfully boot 
and install from FAT32 flash. "Howto" coming soon ;)
About system itself = new theme is good, a little speedup (comparing to 
alpha1) is present.

We lack of good, strong, solid filemanager, like TotalCommander. Maybe 
we could get a sane PBI ? :) Just thoughts, yet.
