The whole installer is quite slow compared to the old
one (woody), although it seems that installing the base
system is faster (downloading, extracting and installing
the debs). But it takes often many seconds between two
screens and that is really annoying.

partman is very slow and I could only create an swap,
ext2 or palo partition. No reiser, no ext3, no jfs, no xfs,
although I selected the corresponding udebs. and you
really get crazy while waiting for the next screen (20 or
30 seconds...)

After rebooting the system just hang. The last output was:

RAMDISK driver initialized: 16 RAM disks of 8192K size 1024 blocksize
loop: loaded (max 8 devices)
Found i82596 at 0xf0826000, IRQ 87
82596.c: MAC of HP700 LAN read from EEPROM

eth0: 82596 at 0xf0826000, 08 00 09 78 5A E5 IRQ 87.
82596.c $Revision: 1.32 $

The kernel 2.6 versions of the boot.img didn't work at all.
(Crash before the first d-i screen appears)
