Uhm, sorry I haven't tested it earlier on Spice, but I was in Hospital last
week... :/

As usual tested on Spice with Kars' kernel...

Keymap is still very b0rken... 
When I choose German (amiga) (there's no PC keyboard layout in standard
mode) I can't type the correct proxy URL: instead of http I only get fttp.
Backspace/DEL doesn't work either. WHen choosing US keymap, I'm not able to
hit Enter (well, I can hit it as often as I like, but nothing happens ;). 

Ok, now for expert mode (debconf/priority=low passed via amiboot):
- When choosing keyboard layout I choose "Kepp Kernel keymap"
- detect/configure network works with that setting
- mirror choosing works as well (can type correct URL)
- downloading components works
- partition dialogue opens... 

I'm ending the test at this point now and restart the buildd... ;)

Anyway, I think the *most* important stuff is to solve the keymap problem
RSN! I think this is a task for linux-m68k. CCing. 

linux-m68k guys: how are chances to get that problem solved soon? Without a
working keyboard layout it seems unlikely that m68k will ever be a Release
Candidate arch in Debian again.
