Base System Installation Checklist:

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


- Install of yaboot: Failed initially because I forgot to create the bootloader
partition when I partitioned my drive. The installer informed me of the problem,
so I stepped back and fixed the partition table. Then the installer was "smart"
so it skipped the formatting and installing, installed the boot loader and
rebooted. Of course, this failed because the partitions were all screwed.

The installer needs to:
	a) Warn the user if they did not create a bootloader partition
	b) If they go back and modify the partition table, they probably should
reformat and reinstall the file system.

- MD5 passwords are enabled, but when the installer prompts for the root account
password and the user account password, they are stored as old school crypt
passwords. This is bad. I had to change my passwords to something else, then
back to what I wanted them to be to get MD5 passwords.

- Mac OS X sets the hardware clock to GMT, but Debian defaults to NOT set to GMT
(which makes sense for PCs). This should be changed for the PPC installer
