Comments/Problems: The only installer problem was the network did not automaticallt set up DHCP, which worked in earlier versions, however manual set up worked fine.
The yaboot installer worked great, the partition finally created a proper bootstrap.

A side note, I have been trying the daily builds for a month, this days (03/31/04) has worked best for me, the 04/01/04 daily build gets stuck in a loop trying to modprobe when installing.

I have not tried the 04/02/04 daily, I am going to wait till the next major beta, unless I see no one else is doing much PPC testing.
Thanks again everyone for all their work I appreciate Debian very much.
