    fresh install on Magento 1.4.2, with sample data loaded
    followed the instructions and everything works except no slider showing on the homepage.

    I am unable to set the page layout for the homepage to homepage. It simply does not appear in the select box options. I am currently 2 columns with left bar, and it seems to work ok, but no slider.

    Other posts mention that layout type must be set to homepage for the slider to work.

    Just checked the demo on the Magento site and there is no homepage option for layout type there either.

    What am I doing wrong or overlooking ?
