I must warn you that installing over an old installation doesn't seem to
have the same effect as a fresh install. Initially i had no problems
with the 0.2-rc1, but when trying to do a fresh install with it it
failed (because of the /./ bug, which caused the iso to be taken of the
site). I'd advise to do a plain install everytime (on a formatted disk)
