Why not make a version to install from a hard drive
.iso image, either internal or external. Then no need
to mess about with cd-rom drive or network connection
which invariably cause problems.

    That is a good idea. Actually, the two first technical
    problems that a novice user finds when trying to install
    Linux are BIOS configuration and CDROM burning from an iso
    file. It will be studied, as it does not seem an easy thing
    to get.

    I commit this issue too.
    I have Intel chipset 965, and I'm not able to install from
    CD nor Network.
    Installing direct from iso will allow me install it.

    Any way, this may be good, as it will allow making disro to
    "download and install" for installing a complete OS.
