When I try to create Ext-3 partitions, the partitioner fails with the following message:
[The Ext3 filesystem creation in part #3 on IDE1 master failed.]
When I try to create Ext-2 instead, it seems to succeed, but now it fails when attempting to mount the partitions with the message: [The attempt to mount a filesystem with type Ext2 in IDE master partition #3 at / failed.]

Can you retry the installation?  Do you have some mounted partition
during the installation?  Do you use LVM?  Which architecture is you
computer (i386, powerpc, etc.)?  Could you go to the command prompt
(Alt+F2) and send us the file /var/log/partman?

I've tried it several times, but I'll re-try it this evening in order to produce the /var/log/partman file.
I do not use LVM.
The architecture is i386, to be precice:
A7m266 Motherboard with AMD-761 VIA-686B chipset.
Disks: IDE (2x, but using the master for this installation only)
Partitioning: Two NTFS partitions at the beginning of the drive.
The first (bootable) partition does have LILO in it's MBR. (residue of an old Woody installation)
