Comments/Problems:
Installation proceeded without issue, using ftp-linux.cc.gatech.edu 
mirror for unstable install.  At around 76% completion of base system 
installation, screen for choosing kernel was presented.  The 
2.6.8-powerpc kernel image was selected, and an error immediately 
followed.  Check the third virtual console showed:

<messages_excerpt>

You might want to run `apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
   initrd-tools: Depends cramfsprogs (>= 1.1-4) but it is not going to 
be installed
                 Depends dash but it is not going to be installed
   libreadline4: Depends: libreadline-common but it is not going to be 
installed
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or 
specify a solution).
</messages_excerpt>

Fourth virtual console shows:
<syslog_excerpt>

Second virtual console started as shown in syslog excerpt above.  
Attempts to run 'apt-get -f install' in the shell on the second virtual 
console failed as follows:

I ran a copy of the Debian Installer daily cd for 20041124, and the
install did not encounter this error.  Apparently the issue has been
resolved.
