Weird thing. I must have installed Debian some 50 times now on different machines; I've used d-i Beta 2 and the very same CD with Beta 4 on my own comp with no problems.

Yesterday I've tried to use Beta 4 on my friend's comp; the problem was that upon selecting a root partition for a format and setting up a swap part. , it started bugging me about LVM. No matter which option I went for ( and I've tried everything ) it kept spitting out errors ( "no physical partitions set up for LVM, cannot add group", etc )

Finally, I gave up and used Beta 2 instead which succeeded.
