ok, i *did* manage to do some tests, overall it worked really nice. if
it does work equaly well on all archs/machines we are pretty close to a
releaseable installer :)

i noted some things:

- ftp2.de.debian.org doesn't work, it can't download the release file.
  ftp.de.debian.org works. this also takes ages to time out
- the autopartitioner works like a charm :)
- this looks odd:

  |                                   47%                                   |   
  |                                                                         |   
  | Creating ext3 file system for / in partition #2 of IDE1 master          |   
  | (hda)...                                                                |   
  most dialogs have an empty line at the lower end, perhaps a line-breaking 
  issue. just cosmetics anyway...
- after reboot hda1 gone 1621 days without reboot and is checked. is
  this intentional? (that's the /boot partition with the ext2r0
- after the reboot i get asked for a mirror again, perhaps this should
  use the values from the pre-boot setup

and something else: in the long run it would be cool to be able to run
the installer over the network instead over a serial line, has there
been any work or discussion on this yet?
