Comments/Problems:

The install went quite smoothly, I was impressed (but not surprised). I
was happy with the help screens available by pressing certian funtion
keys that made it clear how to pass the `nolapic' option that is needed
to boot modern kernels on my cripled motherboard.

I setup RAID-1 during the install. partman was a bit funky, it made each
raid device look like a seperate hard drive capable of being re-
partitioned. In fact it even let me create sub-partitions on the RAID
device but, of course, didn't write them to disk (how could it?). I
don't think it's a major issue.

After setting up the partitions and filesystems everything continued to
work very well. I was /very/ happy that I didn't need to do any
additional fiddling to get the new install to boot from raid.

My only two suggestions:
        1) Make the partman frontend not allow you repartition
           raid devices
        2) Install grub onto the MBR of all drives that are part of a
           RAID-1 array that hold the /boot partition.

Thanks for the great installer,

-Dave

Yes, partman already has a bug or two open about this problem.

And grub-installer already has open bugs requestion this.

Thanks for the installation report. I'm closing it since there are no
new problems.
