This is a known occasional bug - I _think_ it's concerned with how udev 
sees the drive - there should be something in the Release notes being 
prepared now for the actual release of Etch.

Not sure on this.

I've had a couple of problems accessing security.debian.org in the last 
few days so used one of the other servers listed in the rotation for 
s.d.o. If it can't find s.d.o, I wonder what happens? Is it possible 
that one of them doesn't have the appropriate files for Release or keys 
for the signed archive ? Strange things happen in the run-up to an actual 
release - which should be this weekend or so. PARTY !!!
