I've just started trying out pluto (looks good so far) but one thing that jumped out at me is, when doing the initial install, you only get asked to type in the root password once. Just about every system that asks you to set a password asks for it twice. This could cause problems (as it has done for me now) if the password is mistyped.
I'm having to try and reset my root password now because it seems I've got fat fingers and mistyped it during the installation!
Not sure if this is part of the debian side of installation, or something that pluto has control over.
