Debian-installer-version: Debian Installer release candidate 1
uname -a: <The result of running uname -a on a shell prompt>
Date: Aug 11,2004
Method: How did you install? burnt installer and proceed with netinstall
What did you boot off? Booted from harddisk
If network install, from where? Proxied?

Root Device: IDE
Root Size/partition table: 15Gig
Output of lspci and lspci -n:

-CRASH/REBOOT: After Base was installe, system rebooted fine. Entered
root password, at new user account creation entered username, after
entering the newuser password the second time to confirm new user
password, pressed enter key and then the PC rebooted immediately without
any message. Netinstall beta 4 was working fine, netinstaller release
candidate 1 is broken.
-BUG: Didn't want to install grub, so answered "NO" at grub installation
but was then prompted to enter device name where to install grub. After
trying to answer fd0 (as indicated as one possibility) installation of
grub failed with "unable to install grub in /dev/fd0". It's strange that
it still asked where to install grub in first place as even when you say
you don't want grub it ask you where to install it.
thanks for you work.
