Comments/Problems:

1 - Where's fdisk? I prefer fdisk for writing partition tables. After
    <AltF2>ing to the text console to use it I discovered it wasn't
    there. Please include it in the final release - it doesn't take
    up much space and is a lot nicer for the experienced
    user. 

2 - I had a problem with using two ethernet controllers at once,
    the onboard Via and a Natsemi-based PCI card.
    I couldn't find a way of making the
    Via eth0 and the Natsemi eth1 (the installer made them the other
    way around). I took out the Natsemi card and the network setup went 
    OK with via-rhine module assigned to eth0.
    On re-installing the card after the installation was finished,
    eth0 reverted to natsemi and eth1 to via-rhine on rebooting 
    despite the addition of
    
    	alias eth0 via-rhine
	alias eth1 natsemi
	
    to /etc/modules.conf. I did notice that `lspci' listed the Natsemi
    card before the onboard Via, so I guess that's the order
    the kernel detects them in. I solved the problem by putting
    
    	via-rhine
	natsemi
	
    in /etc/modules. This appears to load the modules in that order
    before the kernel probes for them.
    I'm not sure if that counts as a bug or if it was just my ignorance
    of the way modules are loaded.

General Comments: Compared with my previous installation (Debian-installer
Beta-1 used to install 11-11-03 Sid snapshot) this is very nice. Apart from
the above minor problem with ethernet modules, all my hardware appears to
to have been detected properly and set up with the right modules.
(A trivial point - I did notice that /floppy symlink to /media/floppy0 is 
missing).
I switched to Debian around 18 months ago after getting tired of the amount
of software I was forced to install by Red Hat's installation program.
The Debian-installer is far superior - it's very easy to use and still
allows a lean, bloat-free installation.

Use expert mode and choose the "partitioner" udeb (from memory) will
bring you with the fdisk thing (that bloody impossible to properly
translate thing...:-)))

This is the only way to get the modules loaded in the order you wich.

And then closing yet another successful install report...THanks for
your time testing it and reporting your test results.
