Bad things/comments:

After choosing the language, there is an oddly long pause before
the country or region dialog shows up.  Another long pause before
the keyboard layout selection.  (By 'long,' I mean about two seconds.)

The installer does not configure non-free sources.  Is this new Debian 
policy?  (It's fairly easy to edit sources.list by hand but is there 
a way for a new user to do this as an option in the install?)

Good things:

Autodetecting modules is very nice--I had to manually figure out
which network card VMware used with woody's install and add the
module for it.  Mirror selection is better.  stable/testing/unstable
is a nice touch.  The partioner is fantastic--especially easy on the
empty (emulated) disk I used.  I prefer this installer's Grub to woody's
default LILO.

Sound works with no manual intervention on this setup.

Thanks for your installation report. I'm closing it since there were no
real bugs found. To answer a few questions:

 - The delay between steps like choosing language, country, etc, is
   because the design of d-i involves running separate programs for each
   step. This can be noticible on slow systems, like vmware.
 - Non-free is not selected as a deliberate design choice -- most users
   no longer use it. If you do an expert mode install, you will still be
   asked about it.
