Comments/Problems:

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.

All this is expected expert mode behaviour. The installer is quite
verbove about what it is doing and then you get these messages or
questions which are aimed at giving as much control as possible over
installation.

Indeed, expert mode should only be needed for quite specific purposes
and much users should be OK with default mode.

Given the description, let's say this has probably nothing to do with
the installer

You probably guessed well. Welcome to the wonderful world of wireless
cards...:-(

You didn't mention whether you used French as language but I'm sure
you did, n'est-ce pas?. I cannot expect less from my friends from
l'autre c=F4t=E9 de la flaque.  If you did so, I guessed you then picked
Canada as country=A0: if so, was everything OK with default keyboard
settings, timezone and so on?  I do not remember much reports from
French-Canadian users, so it's a good moment for checking.



Given that this install report is a complete success report, I do as
usual with successful install report=A0: I close the bug..:-)

This does not of course mean you weren't right to report. Knowing the
installations are correct is important for the d-i team.

Many thanks for yourtime testing the Debian Installer and reporting
your results. Have fun with your new Debian system!
