I think I wrote this in another report (Bug#277177: installer hangs in 
"detecting filesystems"):
Installing 2.4 ALWAYS works. Installing 2.6 in expert26 mostly works, 
except for this one time.
linux26 rarely works.
I'd be more than happy to try anything you suggest.
I have no reports of hardware problems anywhere: I run either 2.6.9 or 
2.4.29 (current).
Day before yesterday did a e2fsck -cc on both drives: clean.
There is of course, the setup: I run (B)Ruby, 2 monitors/keyboards/mice 
on 1 PC for 2 simultaneous users with 2 X servers.
That uses either a patched 2.4.29 or a patched 2.6.9.
2 video cards: PCI MX-440 and AGP TNT2 and the monitors to those cards, 
X servers pointing to the cards.
2 IBM PS/2 keyboards in the mini-connectors for "keyboard" and "mouse" 
and 2 A4Tech USB mice in 2 USB ports.
But d-i rc2 finds the keyboard without a problems.
