FreeBSD "Welcome to the home page of the finstall project, accepted for Google's Summer of Code 2007. This project aims to create a user-friendly graphical installer for FreeBSD & FreeBSD-derived systems. The project should yield something usable for 7.0-RELEASE, but the intention is to keep it as a "second" installer system during 7.x, alongside sysinstall. In any case, sysinstall will be kept for architectures not supported by finstall (e.g. all except i386 and amd64)." A first version has been released.

I like the idea of the "makeimage" script

Really good to see the inclusion of a script to make the process of creating a Live CD easier.

FreeBSD's stability and general design are excellent, so a big "well done!" to this dev for making it easier to create Live CDs. Great to see! Keep up the good work!
