Hm, cool :) But anyway, I could add more files to FAT flash, but 
couldn't do for UFS ;)
And I didn't forced to lost all data from flash every time I change 
Install image to new one.
I think in whole world there will be two-three people who find this 
useful :D

And Kris, about RC1:
1. If I choose upgrade, I see "Mounting CD..." when rm process working, 
user could be confused, "Why my CD is mounting about 10 minutes"? Better 
change label while removing old data. And place new label in the end of 
install - when PBI are installing.
2. I had rebooted PC with not-checked filesystem. I did upgrade, after 
reboot my filesystem was still dirty and required fsck. And maybe this 
is related - this upgrade couldn't login into KDE. I propose before 
mounting partition for upgrade, check it with fsck, and maybe try to 
intercept some errors according to HDD fails? How about this.

Now going to reinstall fully RC1 and test OS itself :)
