Ok, i installed from the x86_64 beta1 DVD on my vbox3 installation. a VM with 
4 cores and 4GB ram:
 - i notice right away that the installer has nice graphics.
 - the KDE+Gnome choice is still not so good graphics
 - I start installing and suddenly it hangs, i tried to go to terminal, but 
nothing helps
 - I restart installation, and choose updates yes, in the end, and it hangs 
again, at the almost end of updates. I can't get into terminal as well.
 - I shut down, remove DVD, and boot up, and then i see a KDM login screen.
 - I'm kind of freaked by this, since i have a vbox3 and it was supposed to 
 - i log in, and indeed, vboxvideo is running and working, i tested the copy-
paste feature, which didn't work then, and works now... ==> WTH is going on???

 - I have doubts with the weird unstability issue during install (maybe it's 
vbox or multicore related)
 - but the vboxvideo is working??? a nice plus
