I like the new installer. The installation was quite painless, especially with
the standard installer. However, being a control freak, I used the expert one
and I encountered some issues. They were not really important but I think they
deserve an mention:

- The expert mode installer kept harassing me on loading unnecessary modules. I
got it at least three times during the same installation. It wouldn't be so
annoying if it kept reselecting what I have previously unselected, thought!
Reproducted this behaviour on another machine (Athlon XP 2500+, 512MiB RAM,
nForce2 Ultra 400 chipset).

- I got three error messages stating that some Linux modules for controlling my
hardware were not loaded yet. They were IDE modules for controlling tapes,
floppies and SCSI emulation.

- I got a kernel panic after reboot. However, I rebooted it once again and
everything was fine. I didn't noted the exact error it but that's probably the
sound codec, given that I have seen "i810" six or seven times in the dump. I
had issues some issues with it in Fedora Core 2.

- My wireless adapter was not detected but I believe I cannot blame the Debian
team as Intel is distributing the firmware with a non-free licence, right?

That's it! Feel free to contact me if you need more information on something.
