mostly went smoothly.

user interface not clear with "Finished" sometimes being a menu
item, or "OK" being what one would need highlighted to proceed
to next section.

the extremely long names for IDE drives was somewhat
challenging during disk partitioning.

the debian archive apt selection kept returning to the archive
selection menu without the usual "add another apt source"
question in between selections. i don't understand how or why i
got past that section. (seemed like both security.debian.org
and non-us.debian.org were down at the time, which somehow was
affecting this behavior)
