The installer script to automate the process of setting up and configuring Cyberix is very nice, however it's barebones and could use a few tweaks:

1. Checking that all required programs are required in the script before trying to run them (unzip, the package manager, etc.)
2. Checking what Linux system is there, and using the appropriate package manager (ex. on Arch Linux, the command would be "sudo pacman -S wine", to install wine.)

I'd be interested in rewriting the script to provide changes that could make the script more flexible, however Im not sure if it's open to suggestions/changes. Regardless of the caveats of the current script, it's functionality is there, I don't see any serious problems besides outlined above.
