Re: [Jeffrey W. Baker] blown away by the new installer

Yeah, thanks a lot guys. You've done the job better then anyone else!

I had a smooth installation from sid-netinstall iso on my Gigabyte K8NS
Ultra 939. All hardware has been detected and worked like a charm. The
only issues i had with loading sk98lin and ext3 modules, that required
me to go to console and manually loading it with modprobe -f. There were
some issues with kernel module versioning, but I am sure I has been
fixed by now.

Again, many thanks for the Port!
