[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it


My first tries was in swedish and I noted that some parts were in english 
(no surprise I guess) For instance the partition of harddisks was in 

Another note about the partition process, the device names was perhaps a 
little bit hard to begin to understand...

My installation failed when I should install the boot loader (lilo), the 
question about where to install the boot loader just came up again and 
A note: It is not obvious for someone new that /disc at the end of the 
string should be changed to e.g. /part1 to install it on a partition, could 
this not be a selection list of some kind?

After some examination I found out that the actual call to lilo failed 
because there was no kernel to load ( /target/vmlinuz didn't exist ). I 
tried to copy the kernel image found on the boot floppy, and that made lilo 
succeed, but I could still not choose the reboot option.
I rebooted manually and the boot failed for some reason (could not find the 
/ filesystem or some similar error message)

No I didn't read the manual (I didn't even download it), not that I think I 
would have suceeded with it either, but the instructions about device names 
might be good enough there (I did dig them out in another console instead.)

Keep up the good work!
