When packages that had no trouble installing earlier suddenly don't 
install any longer the dvd has turned into a coaster.  What might be a 
useful feature for many linux distros to have would be logging failed 
package installs during installation.  If the installation caqn complete 
and the installation can get out to the network and the package updater 
can get configured, then the system could remember those failed packages 
and go get and install them the first time packages would be downloaded 
from the network and remove each from corrupt.log until corrupt.log has a 
line count of zero and then corrupt.log could be deleted.  I don't know 
how difficult this would be to implement though.
