-When selecting the Belgian keyboard layout, I got the error message 'An 
installation step failed: Select a keyboard layout'.
On /dev/tty4 I could read: 
Error executing gunzip -d -c /usr/share/keymaps/i386/azerty/be-latin1.kmap.gz

So, the installer wants to install be2-latin1, but he tries to unzip 

I chose the American English keymap and the installer continued.

-After the FIRST reboot, aboot insists on booting from the cd-rom drive. I had 
to interrupt (with control-c) and force booting from sda. After a power-down, 
aboot correctly boots from sda.

-After the kernel is loaded, I see some normal messages on the console, until 
he tries to load the scsi-driver. This is a QLogic ISP1020.
From then on, I only get the following message repeated over and again until I 
powerdown the machine:

SCSI aborting command due to timeout: pid 0, scsi0, channel 0, id 0, lun 0, 
Inquiry 00 00 00 ff 00

The installer did it's work almost perfect, but it is not possible to boot 
into a working machine.
