Base System Installation Checklist:
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it

* Boot:
Autoboot worked perfectly.

* First yaboot config selection:
I had to select install-safe-powerpc. Without automatic selection,
it would be fine more information about wonky framebuffer support.

* Network detection and configuration:
Network was configured automatically without problems via my DHCP
server / router.

* Hardware detection:
No problems at all in automatic detection of CD / Hard Drive and in
loading modules.

* Partitions, filesystems, mounting:
I had partioned the disk drive in an earlier installation. The installer
recognised correctly the partition table. Partition menu is clear,
but help hasn't been yet translated. It might be difficult to grasp for
non-english speakers. I kept home partition without formatting it: data
were preserved after finishing the installation. Fine!

* Base system installation:
No problems. Automatically installed.

BUGS! =================================================================

* Yaboot installation:
No problems at first glance, but after rebooting, wonky framebuffer
issue reappeared. I had to configure the base system on a flickering screen
and reboot again appending video=ofonly (I know the trick).
This is an important bug. Installer should configure yaboot such as it was
decided by user at first when she select install-safe.

* Spanish Keyboard map:
Keyboard map selections doesn't work for spanish in this machine.
AFAIK, this is a known problem. I had to reconfigure 'console-common' after
finishing installation and base system configuration with
the options 'Select from arquitecture/qwerty/Spanish/Standard/Standard'.

Thanks a lot for your work. I hope my suggestions can help you to improve
the installer.
