Bug#244539: about your Debian installation report

Hi Joey,
I received this:

Hello, I'm writing you because you filed an installation report a while ago on an old version of the debian installer. Your installation report was #244539
and can be viewed online at <http://bugs.debian.org/244539>.

I checked the report http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=244539 Its title is: Debian Bug report logs - #244539 [ppc] [20040416] [netinst] firewire not supported

A message in the track states:
        - Danish updates (Closes: #244539)

So I was kind of puzzled. I downloaded
http://cdimage.debian.org/pub/cdimage-testing/daily/powerpc/pre-rc2/ sarge-powerpc-netinst.iso and tried installing on an external FW drive on my mac, including yaboot on the external drive.

The "install yaboot" step of the installer fails with the following message in the log:
ofpath: Driver: sbp2 is not supported

Note that:
 - I ran in expert mode
- The partitioner had found Apple_bootstrap partitions on both my internal drive and FW drive. I forced it not to use the internal one.

So I guess there was a mixup in bug tracking.
