I downloaded the installer floppies from J. Hess' daily build directory on 
20040304. The floppies load up OK (by the way, the splash screen looks very 
professional, and is a nice way to initially confront the user). I did not 
need to specify any boot parameters (even though there is a recommendation 
to specify "floppy=thinkpad").

The installer is not able to recognize my ethernet card. I have an Etherlink 
III PCMCIA card. Normally this is recognized by Linux with the 3c589_cs 
module, but even if I choose that in the Network setup menu, it is not 
recognized. I also tried specifying "irq=9 io=0x300" on the parameter line 
(derived from a working Debian install), but that does not work either. I 
tried a number of other network modules (including "not listed"), but none 
of them worked.

As an additional bit of information: I had earlier tried to use the 
semi-official installer floppy images from 20040204. These had no problem 
automatically detecting my PCMCIA network card, and I was able to download 
the full installer with them. (Unfortunately, I could not install the base 
system with them due to "Debootstrap Error Failed getting Releasefile 
http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian//dists//Release."; even though it had earlier 
downloaded the installer!)

Hope this information helps to improve the installer.
