First boot hanged the machine at hotplug time. Some USB module
apparently got automatically blacklisted, second boot worked, but
rivafb module fucked up the console. After manual blacklisting, could
reach baseconfig.

 - I got only server tasks (WWW server, print server, ...) and
   localisation tasks, but no desktop task (X Window system, desktop
   environment, TeX/LaTeX environment, scientific application, C
   development, python development, ...)

 - I didn't get asked which locales should be generated and
   /etc/locale.gen didn't contain sensible defaults (was
   empty). Debconf was configured with "medium"
   priority. "dpkg-reconfigure locales" took care of it, but we
   shouldn't assume installers know to do that.

 - Configured X with nv driver, LCD works, but not external
   monitor. Usually, X tells me in the log what the native resolution
   of the LCD is (DDC?), but not in this case.

(Sorry for being somewhat vague, but I don't have the machine at hand
 now. I'll get a grip on it Friday.)
