Are you sure the first successful installation of Debian happened during
DebConf3?  I remember giving a talk about Skolelinux at that conference
and how Skolelinux used d-i to automate the Debian installation.  During
the talk I ran the installation as a demonstration, and I suspect I
would not have tried to do this if I had not done a d-i installation
before DebConf3.  But my memory is flaky, so I just wanted to ask if
anyone remember when d-i actually was able to install Debian for the
first time.
