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


Pressing OK on the first promp results in:

 Illegal Instruction

I have no experience in debugging this kind of problems.  I might be
able to give more data, if I'm told how to get them.

BTW: I have just installed the box with the woody 3.0r2 installer, this
works fine.

Thanks for working on the Debian installer!
