Current nstallation fails at di

Hi folks,

using several boot images like
- netinst.iso (24.12.2003)
  from http://people.debian.org/~manty/testing/netinst/i386/daily/ 
- boot floppies (27.12.2003)
  from http://people.debian.org/~sjogren/d-i/images/daily/
- TYPE=netboot cd_image
  from cvs.alioth.debian.org:/cvsroot/d-i

booting linux DEBCONF_PRIORITY

and several package repositories like
- ftp2.de.debian.org
- ftp.debian.org

I always end up at the same problem when downloading the installer

Error message on installer screen (vc/0)

  Loading di-utils-device-files failed for unknown reasons. Aborting.

last message on vc/2 (/var/log/messages)

  insmod floppy

  which looks ok, since this occurs at an earlier point

last messages on vc/3 (/var/log/syslog)

  user.debug anna[791]: DEVUG install scsi-modules-2.4.22-1-386-di,\
    dependency from scsi-extra-modules-2.4.22-1-386-di

4 seconds gap here!

  user.info anna[791]: corrupted status flag!!
  user.info anna[791]: (process:1090):  tar:
  user.info anna[791]: (process:1090):  Couldnt remove old file
  user.info anna[791]: (process:1090): : Operation not permitted

nothing else in /var/log/*

Continuing at this point crashes something (installer ?) in that it tries to 
  insmod: init_module: vesafb: No such device or address
which repeats every few seconds and renders the system unusuable
That is most probably a consequence of failing to load the devices package

Interestingly, going back yields the same result.

Hope this helps.
