BeOS & Derivatives It seems like only yesterday when Haiku was nothing more than a mere promise. Oh how the times have changed, as evidenced by yesterday's news: Colin Guenther has ported the FreeBSD WiFi stack to Haiku, and managed to get a connection, browse the internet, and download a large file.

"but what can you expect from the system that doesn't even have an installer yet?"

What an odd statement to read considering that I have used the Haiku 'Installer' to create my last three bootable Haiku drives.

And incase you have not heard 'DriveSetup' creates HaikuFS partitions too.

We are talking about the real-life CD installer here, not some hackish scripts to create pre-alpha bootcd, or qemu/vmware images.
I as well installed it onto many drives, but this is still TESTING, not a real-life use and I'm sure you are aware of this.

You might as well stop spreading misinformation... the LiveCDs are perfectly buildable directly from the build system now with a simple "jam -q @alpha-cd" - and it's a single .iso file you can burn to a disc with any software.

They are not available publicly yet because alpha isn't released. But pretty much anyone can create one on their own if they have the Haiku sources.

Scripts? What scripts?

Go into the 'apps' directory and you will find the PROGRAM called 'Installer' in plain sight.

Before trying to spread a little FUD please learn what is really in the OS that you are trying to put down.

HAIKU DOES ALREADY INCLUDE AN INSTALLER PROGRAM!
