I read the majority of what was posted on this discussion, but I never
saw this mentioned.

First, a way to do something along the lines of an unattended install
would be great. If XML is the way to do this, cool.

As for copying the live filesystem to the disk first: I am just worried
about consuming too much disk space. I realize that this will probably
be the basics needed to get DragonFly installed successfully, but I run
many systems that have the bare minimum space available on a hard drive.
This will not require any extra space, correct?

Also, what will be the minimum requirements for this? I see that the ISO
is at 164MB. I am assuming that there is no X11 or 3rd party apps
included. How much disk space will a minimal install use?

Also, will Perl continue to be kept in the tree?

Sorry for all of the questions, but I'm interested. I hope all of my
sysinstall questions apply.
