I'm not sure if this is supposed to work, but I could not use NTFS
partitions while running the install process.  I thought the 2.2 Linux
kernel had NTFS support builtin, so I was a little surprised.

I did not see it
* from the list of partitions to search for /debian when I went to install
the system
* mount failed, whether regular, -t msdos, -t ntfs

fdisk does see the partitions.  The problem here is not being able to read
the file system

NTFS support is not a default option on i386.  But if you include the
ntfs module from the "configure drivers" step, you can indeed mount
NTFS filesystems.

This is as intended.  Closing this bug.
