Comments/Problems: I hate the new device/partition naming system. Everyone knows
/dev/hda5, but the new version is very confusing. It made setting up lilo harder.
Yes, we use a much better naming schema now. Can you get new images
from http://gluck.debian.org/cdimage/testing/sarge_d-i/ and give them
The first time I tried the installer it did not seem to recognize my
network card and I had to reboot. The next time it worked okay. All
in all a very good effort.
Can you check if the new image finds this card?
I downloaded the new sarge installer as you requested and did a
reinstall. The process went off without a hitch. The card was
automagically recognized and configure and dhcp activated. I am really
impressed with the partitioning system. Not sure if it would be
confusing to some of the brain dead set, but I thought it was very
elegant and simple. It seemed to give added flexibility without being
confusing. The boot loader installation found my Slackware, WinXP and
new Debian installs and added them to the menu. It didn't see my FreeBSD
partition, but that would be a little much to expect. All in all a very
easy installation. Congratulations.
Let me know if you would like me to try anything else, as I am always
happy to try to help out.
