Yes you can. Even did it yesterday :

Note that the installer doesn't clear installed packages. So you have
to get a shell and clear /target/var/cache/apt/archives before
resuming the installer.

Same bus. This multia is running off a 500MB disk in an external case,
*with* proper termination.


And if you don't know where you're going, any road will take you there...
