I installed the Beta using mini.iso installed on a USB stick using
FSUSBi on an older desktop machine.

The only 2 issues that I saw were

1. On a slaved hard drive I have Windows XP with NTFS format. The
install process recognized it and the message seemed to imply it was
going to be added as secondary boot option in Grub. When the
installation process was complete Windows XP was not an option in the
Grub boot menu.  Not that I really care about XP anymore but that it
should be reported as an issue for newer users switching from Windows.
2. The KDE GUI environment was installed by default. I have always used
Gnome and earlier installs of gNewSense installed Gnome by default
including the Parkes Alpha installer.  On the login page Gnome was not a
SessionType option.
3. It seems that root is no longer a "user" one can log into. Earlier
versions of gNewSense had the 'admin' user but perhaps that was an
Ubuntu thing.

Otherwise every else seem smooth.

Let me know if installing with the Live CD would be worthwhile to test.
