Yes, that's it.

Yes, that's it.

No... I did use chroot to install the kernel from the cdrom without any
problem, and with the help of #debian and linux@lists.unixtech.be's
list, I did use chroot and (re-)mount proc to install yaboot.

Now, I have a running sarge (well, now it's sid! ;)) with d-i!

Congratulation everyone! ;)

I'll spend sometimes to tune the system, then I got some java stuff to
do (for Debian) so I'll unsubscribe at the moment. But feel free to
contact me if you need some test on the powerbook. When all my todo's
will be finished, I'll try to help you again.

I'd like to thank all the team for the very good job. It's not perfect
at the moment but it's nearly perfect!.. really!

I'm glad and proud of Debian-Installer!

Best regards,
