Bug#282814: installation-reports: [hppa] hardware detection & partitioning problems w/ 2.6

Package: installation-reports
Severity: normal

Machine is an HP C200 workstation with 128M ram, internal SCSI disk.

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

Using the mini.iso image retrieved from
http://people.debian.org/~jbailey/d-i/hppa/daily/2.6/ today, the system
failed to autodetect my NIC (tulip).  This works reliably with the 2.4

The system also locks up hard (LEDs on solid, can't switch VC, etc)
right after it partitions the disks (or perhaps just as the filesystems
are being written, it's difficult to tell).  Again, this works reliably
with the 2.4-based install.

If the 'lspci' output is needed, please let me know as I'll have to
reinstall completely with the 2.4 disk to be able to get that.
