Very impresed with new installer in comparison with old one (Debian being
the way it is, I rarely need to install)
Major hiccough was after the reboot, when configuring apt, it wouldn't get
the proxy right - I entered http://proxyname but it kept insisting "Could
not resolve proxy." Flipping over to another terminal I could ping it just
fine. I reentered it several times to make sure there wasn't a typo.
Unfortunately, I didn't think to check the configuration it was writing out.
Eventually I gave up and configured apt manually, which then worked fine.
* During password setup, there's a screen which has almost identical lines on
top of each other
Enter the full name of the new user.
Enter a full name of the user:
or something like that.
* If I choose "unstable" I'd rather have the sources.list say "unstable"
rather than "sid" - I can never keep the damn Debian distro names straight.
