Language selection: think I fixed that last night.
Bottom selection: decided to keep things easy this time, without ISO 
inside CD/ISO. Easily enough added again, the UPDATE batchfile which is 
on the A: part (\ISOLINUX\FDBOOT.IMG) creates the inner ISO (which is 
uploaded as TEST2) followed by the outer ISO (which I uploaded as TEST1 
earlier) on ramdisk (64MB required at least). After modifications 
followed by creation of both ISOs, you can decided for yourself which 
ISO to copy to harddisk.

hehe. They're test releases for a reason, I'm not able to fix and 
improve everything right away and in perfectly usable shape.

Copy all you want, directory structure was modified a bit without 
telling the installer. As a consequence, the package is present but not

Strange indeed. CD-ROM driveletter can be altered if you want:
option 1: SHSUCDX /D:FDCD0001,X
option 2: SHSUCDX /D:FDCD0001 /L:X

Your drivers taking over early driveletters is something I can't help, 
no experience with the USB drivers you mention.
A commercial/trialware USB stack is at http://www.georgpotthast.de/usb/ 
, might work, or not. Worked for me yet lacks functionality and disables 
USB legacy stuff so I ended up with a non-functioning keyboard till reboot.
