Description

If a newcomer boots the CD to desktop instead of to installer - perhaps looking for a quick preview of Haiku - it's not easy to find Installer unless you know what you're looking for and where to look. (Deskbar/Find did not work on the CD when I tried it tonight.) A link to Installer on the desktop and/or in Deskbar would help many newcomers avoid a second, painful CD boot.

This is what I suggest for Deskbar:

Applications
Demos
Desktop Applets
Preferences
Installer // sorted after folders, since it's an application

We want people to try Haiku off harddisk and get a better impression of it than what the CD offers. Placing it this prominently will get more people to install to harddisk sooner.

A post-install script could remove it from Deskbar.

I've put Installer on the Desktop, and in Applications/ in hrev32686.
