RE: Severn install summary

Same thing here.  First boot it froze just after probing hardware.  Checking
the other consoles, it appeared to have stopped after enabling swap.  Reboot
fixed this.  I see that initial gui also runs on screen 8?  Is this new, or
just me?

I was a bit disappointed at the lack of options as well, to iniitially 
define screen resolution, login type, etc. On the plus side, resolution is 
changable from the GUI.

I found that simply rebooting did the trick, but had the same hang.
