3.: the keyboard selection seems to have changed recently. Older ISOs
and netboot presented a list of keymaps, but no sun/USB choice. On
VC4, there is no hint about memory problems.
4.: DHCP used to work flawlessly, both with old ISOs and netboot.
5.: I was never able to start partman in the past, messages on VC4
report paging errors, so I assume it is due to low mem. But the
disk is an old RedHat installation, so manually creating file systems
I am going to test the new ISO tonight.
