Package: debian-installer
Version: pre-rc2
Severity: important

Debian-installer-version: netboot.tar.gz from 2004-09-30 daily
Date: 2004-10-01
Method: netboot

Machine: Sony Vaio U50
Processor: 900MHz Celeron M
Memory: 256MB
Root Device: never get that far

Base System Installation Checklist:
[O] = OK, [E] = Error (please elaborate below), [ ] = didn't try it

Initial boot worked:    [O]
Configure network HW:   [O]
Config network:         [O]
Detect CD:              [ ]
Load installer modules: [ ]

Reboot:                 [ ]


The U50 has a single USB2 port to which the keyboard is attached. I
believe the bios (phoenix BIOS v. R0041G5) emulates a PS-2 keyboard, and
it has no option to turn off that emulation. I'm netbooting the contents
of 2004-09-30 netboot.tar.gz and at the loader, I choose the expert26
boot option.

When I get to the keyboard selection, if I say I have a USB keyboard
then the arrows and enter key work, but tab and space do not (and
without tab I get stuck on the network hardware module selection

If I say I have a PS-2 keyboard, then the arrows, tab and enter work but
space does not and any letter keys believe the control key is held down
- pressing "h" produces a backspace, "a" moves the cursor to the start
of the line, "e" moves to the end of the line, etc...

Using the rc1 installer if I booted with
"expert26 debian-installer/probe/usb=false" and selected the PS-2
keyboard option I was able to use the keyboard fine and complete the
installation, but that option doesn't make any difference using the
pre-rc2 installer.
