The installer completely froze on the language chooser.  System did
not repond.  Needed to do a cold reboot.  This has been documented as
being a result of framebuffer problems, but using
boot: linux video=vga16:off 
and also trying
boot: linux debian-installer/framebuffer=false 
options had no effect (the language chooser still came up and froze). 
The intaller appears to be broken for this hardware.
