In configuring keyboard I got a segmentation fault from kbd-chooser:
"postinstexited with status 35584".

After that I went on to try and get the network up. This was where
everything failed and I aborted my installation attempt (as this was a
netinst cd). Errors:
"Something must have gone wrong" at "Detecting HW and loading kernel
modules", running "modprobe -v tg3".

I couldn't load the module manually either ("No such device") and dmesg
gives the following output when I try to load the module:
tg3.c:v1.2 (Nov 14, 2002)
tg3: Problem fetching invariants of chip, aborting
tg3: Problem fetching invariants of chip, aborting

The device claims to be a "BCM5704" in its setup bios thingie and is an
onboard dual gigabit broadcom adapter. Hardware info on the motherboard
can be found on: http://www.tyan.com/products/html/thunderk8s.html

This CD image had an old version of kbd-chooser
which failed badly on missing keymaps, and
a missing console-keymaps-at udeb.
Both problems have since been fixed, so the
bug is being closed.

Please re-open if seen again.
