Do you see the same bug with brltty 3.2?  Or just with the version
on those disks?

This is a well known d-i buglet, but can be ignored.

The problem that select and multiselect menus scroll off the screen
is fixed in d-i CVS.  I should probably generated a new brltty enabled
netinst image soonish.

Usually, you do not need any extra udeb modules.  The required ones are
auto-selected by anna, so you just say "q" for quit, and anna
should start downloading the udebs.

Before I do anything speakup related with d-i, the release-critical
bugs on kernel-image-2.4.20-speakup need to be fixed.  According
to those reports, the precompiled package does not work at all.  This
is not really acceptable as a base for further d-i work...

If you could help figure out the reason (and perhaps fix) for
that would be most helpful at this moment.
