D-I Problems

I just got around to installing a new (to me) 164SX motherboard. I download the latest built ISO and Net Boot images for alpha. I have the following gripes:

* The installer tries to autoformat as ext3 partitions, but no ext3 module is available. I believe this has to do with ext3 compilation problems reported previously on this list.

* The installer does not contain the aic78xx module. The 164SX board supports Adaptec 2940 based boards in SRM, but the D-I does not come with a module for the aic78xx controller.

Other than that, things installed very nicely. The best thing about debian, is once the installer is started, it is about the same on all supported platforms.
