I finished my initial install last night, and made full notes of my choices for each step. I used the "menu" package choosing command, and listed exactly what packages I installed. The package menu has changed considerably since the last version - some packages are in different locations, some packages that were optional before are now required, and some packages that were required before are now options. And some of the packages have been exploded to allow more control over installation - for example, 75dpi fonts and 100dpi fonts are in separate packages. This also applies to X, making selection of packages from the X group kinda nightmarish. Also, note that I did not install php or mysql - I am planning to install both by hand, simply cuz I want to.
One thing I am already impressed with is that the hplip package is included - these are the Linux drivers for HP all-in-one printers. I purchased an HP OfficeJet 6310 specifically because it was supported by this driver set, and I am pleased to see that it is already included.
I'll have more configuration files and notes later, but I am going overseas for a couple months, and won't be doing much configuration until afterwards. My Linux laptop is too nice to take on the boat...
