At last, I upgraded to sid, see my previous mail here ...

Installation was done with testing, so sarge should have worked fine
(should it?), if there were not the dependency problems. I wonder what
people experience who are trying a new installation --- I´d expect they
would run into the same problem and be unable to complete the installation?

Hmmm ... It is running a hardware RAID 5 on 6 SATA disks, one being a
spare. I might be able to put in another disk at the on-board
controller, but I´d have to spend weekends to install and to test.
Whatever testing I could do then would be rather limited.
It would be better to get another machine with an AMD64 and use it as my
client and for the testing. Testing with it would be even more limited,
but I have to do something about the issue --- it´s a very bad idea
having to test on the production server. This time I seem to have been
lucky, but what about the next time?
