OK. I just did an armel install on my slug.
I only had one significant problem. There was an early question asking what
extra components I wanted to install. I chose lvm2-udeb (IIRC) as I
like lvm but that resulted in the install hanging at 'loading extra
componenets'. It may just have been going incredibly slowly but I left
it for a fair while (half an hour?).
re-running the install without that option it all went fine, but I
didn't get an obvious opportunity to use LVM.
Apart from that, and the fact that it took forever, the docs were
spot-on and it all went very well.
