Bug#255821: Installation bug report

Package: installation-reports
Version: Test Candidate 1
flavor:        I'm using images from http://http.us.debian.org/debian/dists/unstable/main/installer-i386/tc1/images/hd-media/2.6/
architecture:  i386 
memory:        512 mg

then installer runs good.
Line 'append="devfs=mount,dall,ramdisk_size=16384"' doesn't work !

Please, change Installation Guide.

WBR, Alex.
