I mean a machine.

oh... all right...

Well, we use kernel-image-2.2.19 in Woody, the upcoming release.

Oh, then it probably is some sort of boot-floppies bug.

I've reassigned it back to boot floppies.

What version of the boot-floppies were you using?  It will tell you on
the "welcome" page.

I am using the 2.2.23

Yes, just find that menu item "Configure the Network" in the
dbootstrap main menu.

Which exact step are you doing when you hit the freeze?  Does it
happen just after you select "Configure the Network" ?  You don't even
get the question about whether to configure the network manually or

It happens exactly when I press "Enter" after I've entered the DNS server

Is it possible to run through these steps of the installation again?
You don't have to reinstall the base system or anything -- I just need
you to run the parts through this.  If possible, please boot with the
'debug' boot argument.

Then, once you've done that and reproduced the problem, please send
/var/log/messages, or, after install, /var/log/installer.log.

I 've begun a whole installation process anew, in order to be in the same
"conditions" as when the problem first arose. It did freezed, and the last
line of the /var/log/messages is :

"Oct 1 17.57.45 (none) user.debug dbootstrap[136]: running cmd '/sbin
ifconfig eth0 netmask broadcast

that's it. 'hope it'll help.
