It installs on it's own partition, so should leave your webOS intact :-) Only thing that you can mess up is Moboot but that's easily fixable :-)
Given the alpha state, it might be wise to leave this version in a 'hard to install' condition so that it will be limited to those with sufficient knowledge (or willingness to acquire it!) to detect and report errors.
When the big issues are fixed, there could be an easier beta package for the rest of us to find the more obscure bugs.
There is a danger of the thread filling up with enthusiasts complaining about usability or crashes, having to doctor, etc. Then there's a danger that the port is labelled as buggy when it's not actually ready.
It's just my opinion, but I assume that's a formalised process: Get it running, release to those who can report or even fix major problems, then a wider beta test, then official release.
