I think the partitioning is still a little rough around the edges, for example,
instead of showing the real name (/dev/ide/host0/bus0...) d-i could show only
"Hard Disc 1", so newbies don't get confused with devfs notation.  I think d-i
could do the same with two disc in the same bus, and just show "Hard Disc 1" and
"Hard Disc 2", decoding the /dev... for the user when possible, if the scheme is
too complicated, then print all the /dev... entries.  Just and idea for you.

The debconf question about taskel/aptitude/deselect... didn't fit well on the
screen, maybe the culprit is related with the Spanish translation, I don't

In tasksel I've selected X window System (maybe the name it's not exactly this)
and it installs pcmcia-cs, which is bad because my computer don't have pcmcia, so
it's a waste of time and leads to no necessary questions, the auto detection should
deal with this better. Also the xfree auto detection fails, it selects a "vesa"
driver, but I have a Nvidia, so the correct driver is "nv".

The installer doesn't set up /etc/fstab correctly, this file has the following

/dev/hdb1       /       ext3    defaults,errors=remount-ro      0 1
/dev/hdb2       none    swap    sw      0 0
/dev/fd0        /floppy auto    rw,user,noauto  0 0
/dev/hdc        /cdrom  auto    ro,user,noauto  0 0
proc    /proc   proc    defaults        0 0

It lacks the two SCSI cdroms attached to the advansys SCSI adapter (the SCSI
adapter was detected by the d-i correctly.)

Although I've selected Spanish as my language at the start of the installation,
but the console wasn't configure properly, I can't type the "ñ".

Finally the machine doesn't power down after shutdown, loading manually the apm
module solve this.

That's all, keep on with your good work.

All the problems are solved in beta 4 except one, which is an i18n
problem and I'm going to report it to the appropriate -l10n mailing
