This was on #debian-boot:
01:12 < pryan> The beta2 iso is apparently missing megaraid and eepro100.
01:17 < joeyh> both are inncluded. How are you booting the installer?
01:25 < joeyh> could you please go learn how to use irc elsewhere? thanks
01:27 < pryan> joeyh: really, both are there? I booted the netinst ISO, selected "expert" and when it got to the hw autodetect it barfed up an error message about these two missing modules.
01:27 < joeyh> just continue on, let it find your cd, load the modules from it, and re-do the hardware detection
01:27 < pryan> ok, thanks
01:27 < joeyh> it's complaining because you are in expert mode, and presumably want to know about minor problems
01:27 * pryan heads back to the server room.
01:37 < pryan> joeyh: Schweet, it is working. I must say, besides the preemptive error message this installer is looking pretty cool.
I will close this bugreport in a next message.

Fine, do the thing that you are think that are right,
I'm not gonna argue with you about "where was the request
to send the (unfiltered) logfiles?"
