Like Baltasar I'm testing sarge installs with the debian-installer and
the target system is a full SCSI machine (disks, cdrom, etc.) I intend
to provide installation reports as soon as possible.

Could you give more information on the loading of "external" modules
please ? Why and how should it be done ?
I'm following this list for some weeks now, and I couldn't remember
having read anything related, but I don't understand everything that's
beeing said on the list though.
Why SCSI drivers, and I guess some others, are not "included" in the
netinst iso ? Is it a temporary situation ?
Maybe updating the Installation Howto would benefit others ?
