1) I had so much fun trying to install the 2.6.6 kernel with the "testing" debs, I decided to try the "unstable" debs.  I used DEBCONF_PRIORITY=medium, and made sure the HFS modules were loaded.  When it got to the "Partition disks" phase, the progress bar got to around 22% then it went blank and returned to the main menu screen with "Partition disks" hilighted.  Hitting return at this point blanks the screen for a few seconds then returns to the main menu with the same thing hilighted.  I'll _never_ get a chance to partition my disk at this rate...
