Bug#263226: Processed: Re: Bug#240679: no network config

I am happy to report that all previously reported problems seem to 
be fixed in the Aug 2 daily build.

I did download and burn that CD from a different computer however.
(But I always checked the MD5SUMS of the burned disk before....)

Unhappily, when I booted after the install, the GDM login window was
frozen (the mouse and keyboard were both dead). And I am still not sure why
Debian is the only install that still has to ask which video driver to use.

I'll try the install again to see if I get better results.
