Base System Installation Checklist:

Initial boot worked:    [O]
Configure network HW:   [E]
Config network:         [E]

[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try


<Description of the install, in prose, and any thoughts, comments
      and ideas you had during the initial install.>

Network hardware: PCMCIA networking on this PC requires
yenta_socket.o  This was not loaded, and therefore cardbus failed
to do the right thing.

Configure network: I did not want to install using networking
but was *not* possible to run the "run installer within pre-boot
environment".  Even though I had no wish to install using
networking, the installer kept going back to the networking

Boot loader: I wanted to install the boot loader in the partition
rather than the MBR, but there was no help on doing this ... I
changed (hd0) to (hd0)(6)  (which is wrong - it should be
(hd0,5)) but there was no error - grub was silently installed on
the MBR.

Reboot: The system booted perfectly ... and then asked for a
password.  There had been no opportunity to set this password.
I had to init=/bin/bash on the command line to set the password,
and I am still at a loss as to how to continue.  Aptitude?
Dselect?  Tasksel doesn't do very much for this system.
