I had to use the 'install-safe' boot option, otherwise the display
didn't work.

When choosing a mirror to download from, I found I had to back out of
the country list before I could choose to use FTP.  I guess this isn't
a problem if you choose a mirror from the list, or (I assume) the 
mirror name begins with 'ftp', but neither of those is true for me.

I chose manual partitioning in order to leave some space for a certain
proprietary operating system.  Partitioning itself worked well, but
when exiting the partitioner, it refused to believe that I'd created
the bootstrap partition.  I messed around with the size a bit, but it 
didn't help. I tried creating the bootstrap partition using mac-fdisk, 
and that didn't work either.  I eventually ignored the warning and 
carried on.  The message I was getting here was 
partman-newworld/no_newworld, not partman-newworld/wrong_size.

I don't know if it's possible to do this check inside the partition 
editor, so you don't need to write the partition table to disk before 
you find out you've got to go back and fix it, but that'd be nice.

When installing the boot loader, the same message appeared.  I started
a shell, chrooted into /target, mounted /proc, ran ybin, and it worked.

Those things aside, everything worked fine.  

In the two installs I've done using d-i now (this one and an earlier
i386 install I don't seem to have bothered reporting on), what's
impressed me most hasn't been how simple it is, but rather how, when
it does break, I can bash it until it works.

     - Clarify partman-newworld/no_newworld text a little.
     - Load the hfs module during initialization.
     - Add a valid_filesystems script for newworld again, so that partitions
       are properly created as hfs (closes: #246841).
     - Talk about "819200 bytes" rather than the confusing "820KB" (see
