Since I tried two installations with different results, I will describe
each attempt separately.

First attempt: booting off a DVD drive attached via PCMCIA card:

Base System Installation Checklist:

Initial boot worked:    [O]

Mount partitions:       [ ]
Install base system:    [ ]
Install boot loader:    [ ]
Reboot:                 [ ]

Comments/Problems:

The installer was unable to access the install CD.  The drive is a Toshiba
External Slimline DVD-ROM Drive, model PA3246U-1DVD.  Since the boot image
didn't appear to have any PCMCIA drivers, it wasn't visible to the
installer.

Trying to install off the network also didn't work, because the install CD
didn't contain any network card drivers (particularly, the e100 driver for
the tablet's built-in card).  I don't have a floppy drive, so couldn't use
the driver disk to get the driver (and besides, with no PCMCIA support, I
wouldn't have been able to read it anyway.

Unable to access neither the install CD nor the network, the installation
couldn't proceed.

Then I tried doing a network boot off of the Debian unstable machine I use
as my desktop system, using the instructions at
http://wiki.debian.net/index.cgi?DebianInstallerNetbootPXE:

Mount partitions:       [O]
Install base system:    [O]
Install boot loader:    [O]
Reboot:                 [O]

Comments/Problems:

The only real problem I encountered was that, when downloading the files
from a Debian mirror, the one I chose didn't seem to have all the files I
needed (ftp.cerias.purdue.edu).  The installer let me go on, but I couldn't
proceed with setting up the partition table on the hard drive since those
components were some of the ones that weren't downloaded.  Redownloading the
files from a different mirror took care of the problem.

It would be nice if, in the case that the download fails, the installer
would prompt you to try a different mirror right away.  It would've saved me
a little confusion.

Another, minor, problem was that even though the installer loaded the e100
network card driver automatically, the driver didn't get autoloaded on
reboot, so I had to add a line to /etc/modules to get it to do so.  I don't
know why e100 couldn't be loaded automatically on the installed system like
it was inside the installer.

Another quibble: when setting up the user account after the reboot, one of
the prompts read:

"Enter the full name of the new user.

 Enter a full name for the new user:"

It would look better if the prompt weren't duplicated on the screen like
that.

Overall, good job on debian-installer.  It was a much better experience,
even despite the problems I had, than the old boot-floppies system.  I
apologize for the delay in sending this report, but I've been busy with
exams, and I figured better late than never.  If you need any more info, let
me know.

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

This is fixed in beta 4.

This is bug #244604.

Thanks for your report, please try again with beta 4 if you can.
