I have just installed 5.3-BETA6 on my old laptop using a CD built from 
the disc1 ISO image, and I found several problems:

1. The spacebar does not work with the first sysinstall menu. The other 
submenus seem to accept the spacebar just fine, however.

2. A GUI selection (KDE, GNOME) is not being offered at the 
configuration stage. I know that X configuration has been removed from 
sysinstall, but I think that the GUI selection should be offered 

3. Some package mess: sudo is in the CD but does not show in INDEX. 
There is no KDE metapackage. Some GNOME dependencies are missing 
(libtiff at least). Possibly more...
