Base System Installation Checklist:

Initial boot worked:    [O]
Configure network HW:   [E]
Config network:         [E]
Detect CD:              [ ]
Load installer modules: [O]
Detect hard drives:     [E]
Partition hard drives:  [O]
Create file systems:    [O]
Mount partitions:       [O]
Install base system:    [E]
Install boot loader:    [O]
Reboot:                 [O]
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it


- when i switch to another console (alt-F2) and return to main (alt-F1), 
i lost the menu (on the screnn), so i have to press another key and the 
menu appears.
- the main menu don't follow the installation step.Example, if i select 
'choose language', and select a language, when i return on the main 
menu, the selected item is always on 'choose language'. it would be 
better to have the next item selected 'Detect network'.

Configure network HW:
- when i start automatic detection, it prints 
 'Unable to load module':

Choose the keyboard:
- the 'go-back' don't work sometimes
- there is no keymap for keyboard latin1 with euro

Config network:
- there is no go-back in the DHCP network configuration
Detect hard drives:
- it loads a lot of hard drive modules from network, and display 'a 
error occured ..... modprobe -v module.o'. I think the user will think 
that his installation has failed. Why try to load first all modules with 
no parameters and see if one of these has detected the HD. And if no 
module work, then enable the user to enter parameters.

Install base system:
- i use a ftp connexion, but at the syslog package, i think a 
'connexion timeout' 
has append and the installer was unable to download all packages. is 
display an error message, but i restart again the 'Install base system' 
and it downloads syslog and the last packages, and the install finished 
well. So, is it possible to put in the install program the fact that if 
some packages are not downloaded, it try one more time again before 
displaying an error message
Install the kernel:
- there are too much kernels, i don't know which one is adapted for my 
computer, and the differences between 2.4.18, 2.4.20, 2.4.22,.....
And if the user doesn't know that 386,586,686 is the cpu type, he will 
not be able to choose the good one. So, in the kernel installtion menu, 
is it 
possible to add a menu item 'install the default kernel', and by using 
the /proc/cpuinfo, select the good one or take the 386 version

After reboot:
- unable to generate locales iso-8859-15 , so it returns in C and qwerty 
so i have to reconfigure console-data

<Description of the install, in prose, and any thoughts, comments
      and ideas you had during the initial install.>
