Comments/Problems:

In general, installer was awesome. Booted into recovery mode first to deal with a dying hard drive, then rebooted to do a full install. Very happy with everything.

The one error I hit was when I aborted an install halfway through configuring LVM. I'd gotten scared that LVM would overwrite my second physical disk (which had data I needed) so I aborted the install somewhere during the automated LVM configuration process.
Second time running the installer I got the error "Volume group name already in use" on the disk. I ended up having to configure the partitions manaully; the automated install refused to run. FWIW, LVM the disk already had partitions named "root' and "swap_1" second time through.

Some more general comments:

The installer hangs at random times while dealing with hardware. "Scanning disks... 38%" for instance. It's a bit scary for someone new, never clear if the thing has crashed.

I was surprised ssh wasn't in the default install, even with "servers" configured.
