No, all my test installations went fine. Of course, the necessary
partitions must be mounted from the "Set mountpoints..." menu entry.
Hugo, have go gone through this steps or have you partitioned,mkfs and
mounted on command line?

This are the default groups since 2006.08. You could/should only
install packages from base (and base-devel) and a few other packages
during first time installation. Pre-2008.06 has groups like default or
"other libs", but these aren't needed.
