Download was much better, though it got a bit ragged towards the end. Burned, installed.
Install: Selecting a /home partition, 'keep, do not format' prompt appears twice.
Selected UK keyboard layout for X, but ended up with US, had to edit xorg.conf after boot.
There are still two icons missing from the menus - About Xfce, and GTKFind.
Problem with the VASM mount applet still shows here. I select /dev/hda1, first panels detects it as HPFS/NTFS, but the third panel specifies that it is XFS. If others are not seeing this, I wonder if they are using XFS? I have both / and home as XFS, plus Zenwalk (x2) on XFS. Output of fdisk is as below:

Fonts used for Xterm are much too large for my poor little 14.1" screen. Where are the defaults stored?
Also, one suggestion - there doesn't seem to be a calculator of any sort on the system. Would be nice to have something like Galcualator available - I always seem to need a calculator at some point.
Generally looks very good, only regression in my case is the failure to set the correct keyboard layout for X, which worked in the last RC.
There is still a link to libjavaplugin_oji.so in the root directory. That appeared with the last RC.
