I tried the latest CD (2003/1/1) and had about the
same problems. Two differences from the last
1) So far, when I booted the CD by pressing Enter at
the "boot:" prompt, the integrity check always failed

ide=nodma" at the "boot:" prompt, the integrity check
always failed at the check "base-installer."
