linux bootkbd=qwerty/us  did not work - still came up with Dvorak which 
I do not know!!  Burying this as a boot argument makes it more 
difficult for beginners I have to imagine.  After mucking about for an 
hour or so I figured it out with most of the time spent having 
difficulty typing.

It would be nice if after selecting country there was a second selection 
for selecting keyboard layout.  

I am new to debian and I had to hunt around to find the email address to 
send this report to.  Perhaps it should be on the same web page as the 
report form?

xfs and jfs file system modules had errors loading so creating these 
file systems was not possible.
