  from April 30, 2004

I sent a complete install report for this installation but wanted this
comment to be in a separate report.

My P-III and P4 both got installed with a 386 kernel.  It would be
nice if d-i recognized that a 686 kernel would work on the P-III and
the 686-smp kernel would be needed to take advantage of hyperthreading
on the P-4.  In other words, it would be good if d-i would install the
correct CPU-specific kernel.

I fully recognize that having multiple kernels would take up valuable
space on the installation medium.  Maybe selection of a correct kernel
should explicitly be part of base-config.

That you for your installation reports. Glad the installation went smoothly.

The issue you reported with d-i not recognizing your NTFS XP partition is a 
known error for Beta 4 and has been fixed in the daily builds.
See: http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-installer/errata

Selection of the right kernel _is_ supported by d-i, but due to size 
considerations (limited to about 100MB) only the i386 kernel is included on 
the netinst iso.
The full debian CD's will support a choice of kernels.
Also, you are offered a choice of kernels if you use the businesscard iso as 
the kernel will be downloaded from a mirror.

I am closing both reports as there were no other issues.
