Thank you for sharing this with owl-users.

I've looked at this installer a bit.  Basically, it's an extension of
our owl-setup tool, which previously only configured an Owl system but
did not install it.

This is not the way I'd like our official installer to work.  The plan
was to move away from shell and dialog to perhaps C++ and ndk++.
Although not having done that, I agree that it could be reasonable to
add some of this functionality to the existing shell scripts for now.
(No, I do not think we could apply any of your changes directly, --
they're not clean enough.)

Could run "setup" to configure networking and a temporary root
password through it instead, then "exit" to boot into multi-user,
login, and proceed with your further steps.

Could use lftpget here.
