Nice overall.

The only problem was that I had previously installed
Windows XP in /dev/hda1.  The grub configuration asked whether
to install in the master boot record, and warned that doing so
might prevent other OS's from booting.  So I said 'don't install
in the MBR'.

But afterwards, I couldn't boot Windows XP anyway.  I think this
is because it marked /dev/hda2 as the bootable partition.  After I
marked /dev/hda2 as non-bootable and /dev/hda1 as bootable,
Windows XP booted fine.

Install logs and other status info is available in /var/log/debian-installer/.

Thanks for your installation report!

The marking of the partition is controlled in the partitioner.

The newest debian-installer builds now detect your previously installed
operating systems, and will offer support for them in your grub menu.

I hope both of these help in your future installs.
