I hardly had to intervene with the install. I was asked to set up a user, whether I wanted to set up a root account, and whether I wanted fortune to run when I opened a terminal (ok, so there was probably language and time zone stuff, too).
Oh… my fortune:

plan because of your extreme stupidity. /
There is an XFCE 4 mintConfig, which has a nice interface… I was looking for WPA setup, and it's there under networking (WPA 1 & 2). However, I have not been successful at accessing my router. I think my Linksys wireless card is toast, so I'll have to test with another card.
One big plus here is that Firefox runs well on a Toshiba Satellite A15-S127.
I may post more once I get wireless running.
