Monolithic Installer Question

Greetings Goswin,

I just tried the 13 Feb sid-amd64-monolithic.iso wondering if this installer would fetch everything from the internet without having any internal packages. There was a problem with selecting the mirrors. The installer correctly looked for an debian-amd64 mirror except the mirror list seems to be for the i386 archive. There doesn't seem to be a way to enter the mirror only select from the list.

Also, the ext3 filesystem was made except the partition later was identified as ext2 when mounting from my current install.

The installation failed because no valid mirror with Packages file for debian-amd64 was found.

The specific problem I wanted to address is the netcfg. The broadcast address is set to instead of x.x.x.255. There was no way to enter the address. The address causes my DSL modem to crash. This is also a problem on i386. This should be easy to correct if the proper developer is contacted.

Question: Who or where should I file a bug report as follows?

This was done correctly:
========= installation /etc/network/interfaces ==============

# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
	# dns-* options are implemented by the resolvconf package, if installed
	dns-search localnet

This was not done correctly:
======== installation ifconfig ===============

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:11:2F:E0:3A:27
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:

The Bcast: shown above is incorrect.
